About it All

This webspace is titled Truthful Kindness, so “about” should be both about ME specifically … and about this blogspace specifically.

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

  1. Hi, Short Story. In 2001-2 i wanted to learn how to work a P.C., so i started Writting my own Life Story. It was a task and half for me, as Writting was Not Top of my List. Two Thing it seemed to have helped with, is my Writting is more interesting. By Writting my own Life Story, i have Had to use my own Memory to fill in the spaces. My Mother passed away in 2005, do to a Family upset with my Sister I do Not Talk to her. Two years ago my Brother was told he Had the sad illiness, so all the Information in the Story is from my own Memory. One of the Things it also helped with is, my own Day to Day Memory seems better. I do Not stand at the bottom of the stairs, beföre i remember what i was going UP stairs for. You can find Some Details on the Internet, Enter Fondmoment Memory Diary. Regards Colin.

  4. So glad you commented to a post I made on Youtube. To read your thoughts about dementia are helping me to understand it better. My only regret is that my Mom hid it from us, and we didn’t realize how much she could have used our help. We would have taken the journey with her had we known.

    • Thank you very much for commenting here, Nancy. Good for you for looking into it. Experts expect a huge increase in Persons With Dementia in our society in coming years, so learning more about it will be time well spent. 😀 — Tru

  5. Dear Tru, Thank you for your insights and inspiration.

    I am doing a PhD at Newcastle University in England.

    I am investigating physical activity for people with dementia. You may be aware of research in this area. There is tentative evidence that physical activity may reduce disease progression.

    My research is focused on enabling people with dementia to maintain active lives. I have not interviewed anyone yet (as I have to overcome university ethics requirements first!).

    Whilst I prepare my research, your blog has been extremely useful. I used your blog on communication to help me to write clear information sheets. Your communication blog will also help me to conduct my interviews in an ‘dementia friendly’ fashion.

    I think that you are an inspirational woman. Not just for your endeavour to educate about dementia but in dealing with disability and life in general!

    With best wishes,

    Lizzie

  6. PS. I just realised that there is a very poignant message on my desktop. I wonder if you have come across this quote before:

    “Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.” Mother Teresa

    I try to reflect on this message as my head gets swamped with the pressures of study! I guess it might be a useful reflection for those living with dementia too?

  7. Hi Truthful Loving Kindness,

    We have a new business benefiting Alzheimers research and I thought you might like to share with your readers! Came across your blog on “The 20 Best Alzheimers Blogs” Congrats!

    Rivet Revolution http://www.rivetrevolution.com has launched recently and has gained quite a lot of interest very quickly! We have designed bracelets to be worn every day and inspired by the perennial strength of the “rivet”—which can be traced back to the Bronze Age—our handcrafted classic jewelry is symbolic of the emotions and wishes of those who have been affected by this disease. For every $38 bracelet sold, Rivet Revolution will donate $10 towards Alzheimer’s research. In addition, Rivet Revolution is partnering with two rock star organizations to make an impactful difference in the revolution to end Alzheimer’s: Part the Cloud and Mikey Hoag & Stanford Neurological Research and Dr. Frank Longo.

    We would love to send you something in return for you sharing with your readers as we think this is a perfect fit for your readers! Please contact me at jessica@rivetrevolution.com

    Check out our website http://www.rivetrevolution.com to learn more about the revolution and to purchase our stackable and stylish bracelets! There are 6 colors to choose from.

    Look forward to hearing from you,

  10. Hi Truthful Loving Kindness,

    I just discovered your blog and wanted to know if you have heard of Marlena books?

    Marlena Books is a Canadian startup that makes specialized books for individuals living with dementia for recreation and cognitive engagement. We’re on a mission to get the word out about our books to make sure every Canadian living with dementia has something unique and meaningful under their tree this holiday season. (We also ship to the USA!)

    If there is an opportunity to be featured in a story, we’d love to explore it.

    Warmly,
    Hannah
