Nothing Is Sacred When You Have Dementia

The link below is to a well articulated blog post written by Faith, a fellow blogger friend diagnosed with Dementia when she was 43 years old, now 47.

Her diagnosis is called "Major Neurocognitive Disorder" … the new DSM5's dx for dementia, trying to get away from word "dementia" due to stigma.

While there are some typos and language difficulties, her shared insight into what she is going through is amazing, disheartening, and sad. 

Yet beautifully so, she remains optimistic, positive, and upbeat! 

Hopefully it can help us be better in our dealings with and relationships to the people we love who are living with Dementia/ Alzheimer’s and other disabling illnesses.
