Well in the case where you have any memory issues that is perplexing concept sometimes for many reasons. Firstly, everything you do takes a lot longer than it used to and secondly often you don't remember doing all of the things that you do in a day. So then all of a sudden hours or perhaps the whole day is just gone and you wonder what did you accomplish! Now I know that in a general sense, I have marveled at the concept of how time seems to fly in life long before I had any symptoms, now imagine the same thing except you can't remember if you just did what you set out to do in the first place or why it took you hours to do something that you had planned on taking 15 minutes. These are the sorts of things that I deal with on a regular basis and it can be frustrating but I try not to let it get to me very much because I can't change it. No one truly understands nor could they understand what people like me (diagnosed with a dementia) go through, it is truly impossible to totally understand unless you experience your own version which are all at least somewhat different I might add. Just as we are all unique people, so are the paths of our disease and what we experience. Sure, there are things that most of us have in common and we usually have an instant bond from these shared experiences. There is something really soothing about people who know what you deal with, generally anyway, without having explaining anything to them. If you are someone new to a dementia diagnosis, I highly recommend joining DAI at www,.joindai.org and getting involved in a support group and other activities.
That's it for today, been a LONG time once again between blogging because I forget to even check my site let alone blog on it due to my advocacy and work to support DAI.
