“PWD Perspective” Contributions from other Persons With Dementia (PWD): Anonymous,
with Mild Cognitive Impairment.
“… I went to (a) baby shower.
It was difficult on many levels for me.
The crowd of people, although just family
…made me anxious.
I explained it later to my (family member)
… its like being drunk and trying to pretend like your sober.
I struggled with the games…
who knew baby bingo was so difficult…and
used my sarcasm to cover my embarrassment.
By the end of it,
I was slurring my words and wasn’t able to find them
it seemed they kept slipping away.
It was easier to just smile than to engage in conversation.
I came home and felt absolutely exhausted.”
