Some of my friends are experiencing what they are concerned is “apathy”
regarding current violence in the world.
Others are in a frenzy of panic-mode.
I do not have ability to make positive change for that sort of disaster … in the time I have left.
part of processing and accepting my current trauma of dementia symptoms is that
mostly I avoid investing in violence (even emotionally, by reading, watching movies/news, etc)
— unless I have power
to change some aspect of the future
THRU that investment.
for my investments of time and energy.
is in the documentation of lived experience
for dementia symptoms;
these stories of lived experience
will be valued enough to make a difference in the larger perspective.

Thank you for your perspective. I am aware of a lot of violence, decievement, and and falsehoods are rampant in our world. I am aware that good people, kindnesses, and love also exist. Above all is God. I think I do see more apathy in myself with MCI, but I do believe that our priorities, and and realistic expectations of what we can affect and not affect also change with more maturity, and clarity. Most important is how I live my life, and the immediate relationships with people I am surrounded with. You make an important contribution to understanding and living with cognitive impairment.

Yup; most important is how we live our own lives — and our immediate relationships. — Priorities ! 😀
