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.
