2020 Update: HealthLine no longer includes even one first-person perspective in their “Best Alz Blogs”. i consider that “about us … without us” ((growl-snarl)).
To my surprise,
AFTER HealthLine contacted me in January with fact that i was included in 2019 Best Alz Blogs,
then AFTER 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”.
Want to thank readers of this blog. It is an honor that you would spend your time to read my words.
My actual Blog “anniversary” won’t be for several more months, but today HealthLine’s annual “Best Blogs” announcement was published >> https://www.healthline.com/health/alzheimers-disease/best-blogs-of-the-year.
In contrast to some of the other “Best” Lists, this is not a popularity contest;
each year, Healthline recognizes “candid and powerful blogs that capture a wide range of perspectives on Alzheimer’s disease.”
As it has been the past five years,
Listed among the top 12 Alzheimer Blogs for 2019 is my own blog; http://www.truthfulkindness.com.
This gives me an excuse to publish my own List of
my 12 blog entries that i consider most crucial:
First off, I have written specifically to medical professionals here >> https://truthfulkindness.com/2018/05/01/2-neurologists/
Next, Noticed during past 5yrs that my friends Living with dementia, and those on various “support” teams do not necessarily agree on which entries are most crucial.
The three blogs that my PLwD friends most talked about and shared (saying they wished their friends/family would read) are:
#1 : Time & Energy Consumption >> https://truthfulkindness.com/2015/07/20/time-energy-consumption-dementia-symptoms/
#2: Distorted Decision Making >> https://truthfulkindness.com/2014/09/09/distorted-decision-making-in-kitchen/
#3: Learned 2016 >> https://truthfulkindness.com/2016/12/31/2016-my-dementia-symptoms/
As author, i think my most crucial blog entries are on Communication & Relationships:
Importance of Communication of various types >> https://truthfulkindness.com/2016/01/26/import-communication-pwd/
My New Normal >> https://truthfulkindness.com/2014/07/26/my-new-normal/
ECT= Environment, Content, & Timing >> https://truthfulkindness.com/2014/12/12/suggestions-understand-audio-communication-dementia-symptoms/
Floating Words >> https://truthfulkindness.com/2018/12/31/floating-words/
And effect at end-of-day >> https://truthfulkindness.com/2019/02/11/altered-afternoon-relationships/
Decided to make it a “Baker’s Dozen” and include one more Link for relationships:
Hole in Self-Control >> https://truthfulkindness.com/2015/01/26/hole-in-my-self-control/
