Revised 2021: This blog has slowly been making a change.
Focus remains on dementia Symptoms and Strategies, (especially including strategies for Communication and Relationship)
from 1st-person perspective, but …
My husband has been much more involved in each entry;
i write an entry, then he reviews and asks
“Are you sure this is what you mean here?” and
“would you like to add something about …”
… so it is not just me any more … it is US

2019: Hello Reader. Tru here.
i descend from many generations of pilgrim and frontier-folk
Discovering and sharing coping strategies, while traveling on little-known paths.
Mostly unknown, except to those who are traveling the path with us, we are driven to continue.
Cognitive decline is my frontier, and those traveling the path with me are also living with dementia symptoms.
Like the Pony Express rider, i strive to take messages of coping strategy among those on this particular frontier, but also to those who follow paths “along-side” such as family, medicine and care. Someday, strategies from those on the frontier (of experiencing dementia symptoms) may be valued and freely dispensed to the newly-diagnosed.
Pony Express is specialized task requiring time, energy, and dedication, (and yes, sometimes we get “shot at” by bullies determined we discontinue).
i am not the only dispatch rider, but this blog is my own major “mailbag”.

UPDATE: ((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
