Happy Easter…….

Well this Easter is so different than previous ones….with short breaks away, family gatherings, village fetes…..the start of the tourist season….this year it has to be none of that…

All those things can wait and once they arrive we can enjoy them all the more and I’m sure we will appreciate them more, knowing what we could have lost…..so for now the message has to be….

Instead here’s a bit of listening for you. My virtual cuppa with Wendy have come to and end, and as I said yesterday in my blog, I couldn’t type and zoom so there are no blogs about these from me. However, they were all recorded and here’s two from this week. The first with guest playmate Agnes Houston on “Finding Time for me” and the second, one with playmate Ron Coleman with a fascinating conversation about the importance of. ‘Discovering Technology’ in this strange world…….

About wendy7713

On the 31st July 2014 I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. I may not have much of a short term memory anymore but that date is one I’ll never forget. I’m 58 years young, live happily alone in Yorkshire, have 2 daughters and I’m currently still in full time employment in the NHS. However, I’m now in the process of taking early retirement to give me a chance of enjoying life while I’m still me. I've started this blog to allow me, in the first instance, to write all my thoughts before they’re lost. If anyone chooses to follow my ramblings it will serve as a way of raising awareness on the lack of research into Alzheimer's. It will hopefully convey the helplessness of those diagnosed with dementia, as there is no cure – the end is inevitable. However, I’m also hoping I can convey that, although we've been diagnosed, people like me still have a substantial contribution to make; we still have a sense of humour; we sill have feelings. I’m hoping to show the reality of trying to cope on a day to day basis with the ever-changing environment that dementia throws at those diagnosed with the condition. What I want is not sympathy. What I want is simply to raise awareness.
