The Hardest Thing for Me
I think for me, the hardest thing was letting go of things I could not do.
I cannot drive anymore.
It’s hard for me to keep up with things.
I lose my phone for hours and its sitting right in front of me.
I wanna go somewhere by myself and I can’t.
I go visit others and they said well you remembered it last time.
What do I do next?
It’s the same thing every day.
I get very argumentative.
So they have found a new pill.
My headaches are gone.
Not so much forgetfulness.
I’m so excited; it feels like I am in a whole new world.
I am very thankful for this group (Dementia Mentors).
Sometimes I have to just sit and listen.
