All Dementia related items. What I have researched, my thoughts and my life living with my Dementia.

Which?

Which One? Well, to be honest, it’s not one, it’s rather a bit more! I’ve just been reading this month’s Which report on supplements, and I’m now thinking, should I rethink what I’m taking? If you are not already aware, I will do anything to keep the symptoms […]

Fidget Away!

I read this bit of advice about carers dealing with agitation. This was on the Alzheimers.org site. If the person fidgets a lot, try to give them something to occupy their hands, such as a soft toy or worry beads, or a fiddle product or ‘rummage box’ (a […]

I’m ready to start school!

I hated school! As I moved from Infants, to Primary and then to Secondary, my hate and fear of school grew! Becoming a teacher in later life may seem a strange career course to take, but I loved teaching and think I wasn’t too bad at it. It […]

Another disturbed night of sleep!

I’m sure it has something to do with my reduction of Lorazepam. I’ve just started my third month of gradually removing my bodies need for Lorazepam; now only one tablet at night. I’m noticing that I am irritable, lethargic, have a constant dull headache, have aching limbs, and […]

Happiness is more than being Happy!

Are we trying too hard to be happy? I’ve been watching Hardtalk. A BBC program that does in-depth interviews, with prominent people from around the World.

Stuck in my Bubble!

I tried to explain my feelings and fear the other day when I went for my vaccination. That feeling is sticking with me; it’s further back, but still there. I’m hoping with time it will go away. It is strange when a feeling, thought, hurt, and pain can […]

My Vaccination Nightmare!

I can talk about it now! I can rationalise it now! Twenty-four hours ago, I couldn’t think about it! My daughter told me that I had to go and have my covid vaccination. The fear hit me straight away! Now, it had nothing to do with the vaccination. […]

Is Your LIfe Aimless?

Some days, I’m just so down, and life seems too hard to cope with! The reasons can be manyfold; if I’ve had a seizure, a bad turn, having problems with one medical condition or another, another mouthful of tablets and another day of suppression. This all grinds me […]

Logic Pro X… can you help?

I am working on my personal Dementia Challenge to learn, sing and record a song every day of 2021. It’s going great! I’ve got nothing fancy, no studio or support bands, just me, a basic set up, with mic, computer and using a program I’ve not used before […]
