My Right Hand 👋 Has a Mind of it’s Own!

Over the last twenty years, my right hand has been a problem and now it seems to be as bad as ever. I keep it in my pocket as much as possible, because it will start shaking on it’s own.  Here is the strange thing and leads to the question I want to ask you […]

More than dizzy and sick 🤢

If you have ever had travel sickness, or motion sickness of any type, then that is how I am feeling right now. As soon as I sat up in bed, it hit me and trying to rush on crutches, to bathroom is not great.  Then that heaving and heaving and heaving. Nothing was coming, just […]

Is this a different type of Dementia?

I think the last time I heard, there was over 200 recognised types of Dementia. Has anyone heard of anyone suffering from a drug induced Dementia? I know that dementia type symptoms have been recorded in regard to missuse of drugs, but I’m more interested in prescription drugs.

2nd Week Reducing Gabapentin

This is the second week of reducing Gabapentin. I’ve only reduced this by 100mg, from 900mg a day to 800. I did not expect any withdrawal symptoms really, especially after the ordeal I had coming off Morphine, but this is something else. My brain will not stop, it is almost painful. It feels as everything […]

I’m Demented, or should that be Bananas?

Have you looked in a dictionary, or checked online, under the word, Dementia? Before I start, I must stress, these are not my words, but are taken from the English Dictionary and Thesaurus, which also covers the Scientific and Medical meaning of these words. This is what I found: Dementiaits a Noun severe impairment or […]

A Bad Day with Epilepsy!

I am sorry that I cannot record this, my brain cannot speak at moment.It is early and I have been awake short time. I do not want to write now, but if I do not put this down now it will be gone as so many times before. It might not be that clear, but […]

Dance Like There’s Nobody Watching… 💃🏼🕺🏼

I’ve just watched a TV program called, Trust Me I’m a Doctor, because there was one section looking at how doing a bit of ballet movement, can help people suffering with Parkinson’s Disease. Parkinson’s is a condition that comes under the umbrella of Dementia. Parkinson’s is caused by damage, or loss of brain cells, medical […]

Blogging It…

Every day, my son and daughter encouraged me to write down what is happening to me during that day. Most of the time this was just simple notes , not good, ok, sleeping a lot, or they would become more involved, especially when I’m researching something of interest at the time. This also helped in […]

Is My Reality, Just a Dream?

I live in a constant state between what I think of as a dream world and reality. I have to make myself conscious of the real world, because often I will just become aware of being here. When I’ve tried to explain this before, people have thought of it as daydreaming, that thing when you […]

What is My Life Like Now?

More than two years have passed… and I’m still here… but now I’m starting to live again! Lost, confused, unsure, unclear, perplexed, disorientated, bewildered…. these were the words emblazoned across the many leaflets I was given: Help Beat Dementia! Yes..yes…Yes! There was hope, somebody was there to help me! The first leaflet was for Carers… […]
