Maybe you could try them too?

The Marathon a Week Challenge

It has been a long time since I was doing 26miles a week, so it is time to start again. Part 1. Out the front door and cover a distance of 1 mile. When I get back, check and record how long it took. I’m going to do the same circuit, covering the same mile, […]

Fortunately, but Unfortunately

Try this simple, but challenging game between two people, or groups. Decide who is going to be, ‘Fortunately’ and then the other will be, ‘Unfortunately.’ You have to make a sentence, or statement, starting with your chosen word. Then the other person has to reply, using the their word. This is then repeated until someone […]

Eureka Moment!

I know when you read this you might think, well that’s no big thing, but believe me it is! The other day my daughter said, your hand writing is really coming on. I didn’t think that much about it, other than I was pleased at the support. My right hand is no good at doing […]

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 […]

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 […]
