Tru here regarding symptoms of fatigue and inflexibility.
— cool, crisp, and crinkly.
so At the moment
I am at the end of my flexibility,
… in schedule adaptability
… and in communication.
Needing to renew
but Spring feels a long way off.
minimize amount of tasks,
minimize task complexity,
… and time to maximize appreciation of EACH moment,
in whatever way those moments might take form.
Time for slow soak in tub.
Time for music.
Time for SLOWLY creative moments.
Time for warm hugs, quiet words … and mugs of hot chocolate,
while sitting in front of a crackling fire.
Time to enjoy some special moments with YOU !!

Those moments might be in person, but they might be in video chat … or even a card or letter. But at times like this i personally need very quiet, close relationship, … or prayer and meditation. Because for ME, relationship makes life worth living.
Each person is different, and someone else might need perky pick-me-up. But for ME perky pick-me-up would be entirely exhausting at this stage, leaving me in worse condition than i started.
What about YOU ??
This blog entry began with photo posted by a PLwD friend, Wendy Mitchell. (PLwD = Person Living with Dementia.) Tried to nap after i saw the photo, but instead words started spilling out, desperately needing a place to settle. So the words settled on this page, and it is lovely to create … again. ((smile)).

((Previously, i had a notice here at base of each entry with announcement and Logo for HealthLine 2019 Best Alz Blogs. To my surprise, after HealthLine contacted me in January with fact that i was included in 2019 Best Alz Blogs, then announcing it publically on March 18, ten days later they decided against including writers with Mild Cognitive Impairment, and removed this blog from their listing, leaving only one first-person perspective. Now i am deleting each of those announcements of my inclusion on HealthLine Best Alz Blogs for 2019. i hope they soon decide to include at least one other first-person perspective in their “Best Alzheimers Blogs”.)) >> https://www.healthline.com/health/alzheimers-disease/best-blogs-of-the-year
Enjoy your âmeâ indulgence. We all need them and I feel most of us donât allow ourselves to indulge fully often enough. I am enjoying my time with hubby after his close call heart attack last week. He now has 3 stents and is working to get comfortable in his new life circumstances. It certainly puts things into perspective when someone close nearly âstepped in front of the busâ so to speak. â Indulgingâ has as many versions as there people and circumstances can change what those indulgences may be.
Thank you, yet again, Dear Lady, for allowing me in on yet another insightful lesson.

Elle & Gord,
So glad you took the time to write. Hope Gord is mending well, and i was pleased to see his FaceBook update. He is on our Dementia Mentors’ prayer list. Would be a treat if he could join chat for a few minutes some time.
i know he wants to get back out there, but Please encourage Gord to take some time, and not rush his recovery.
Tru & Guy
