This Life is Mine

“PWD Perspective” Contributions from other Persons With Dementia (PWD): Myrna Norman, 

Posted 2018 May 26 at her PUBLIC “Middle Stages” FaceBook group >>

I have dementia
The Frontol Temporal
and the Alzheimers types.

I am frightened
For the changes already
Made and those to come.

I am grieving
For my spirit and
For my disappearing soul.

I am in dispair
For these’s nothing
That can be done now.

I am aware
Of the words blowing
Away from my brain.

I want to be
Productive while I can
Before it’s too late.

I am pleading
For the stigma to
Be quieted for all.

I am choosing
To life on day at a time
This life is mine.

— Myrna Norman

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”.)) >>
