My Alzheimers Journey January 27, 2015 at 7:30am
I wanted to share pics of my quilting projects I started working on before Christmas . It’s a Christmas gift for my Daughter Little Dawn in Georgia. As you know my daughter in the pic is also Dawn. Little Dawn is actually my step daughter but I’ve been her Mom since she was 8.It’s my first quilt top that I have ever done. but won’t be my last as I have several to put together. It wasn’t as difficult to put together as I thought . I wish I had started quilting a long time ago. Now I have something else I want to do but that adds one more thing on the list of many. LOL
My Alzheimers Journey January 27, 2015 at 7:22am I had a great day out with my friend Linda yesterday. I made a gift for her over the week end. She was my assistant manager at the first job I ever had in 1985. I also worked with her at 2 other retail stores in later years. God knew what he was doing when He made us friends all those years ago. We grew up in the same church denomination. Her Mom had AD many years ago& when she saw about my Diagnosis & reached out to me. Here’s a pic of us after our day out with her little gift. She was so surprised !

I wanted to break up my post into 2 parts because I know it’s hard for my friends with dementia to read very long posts. I have started going on video chats with others that have dementia, I am learning so much from them but it can be a little scary at the same time. I see my future in them. They are all truly amazing people to share their lives with us. People that share their lives with us are very brave individuals. Because of their opening the windows to their lives & letting us look in we as new patients with the diagnosis see what we will face . We will also learn what we can do to make our lives better & live to the fullest with the time we have left. Older people seem to think it’s something to be ashamed of & that it shouldn’t be talked about. I know some people like that right now & they would not like for me to suggest that they should even see a neurologist. They live in the same house & both are a lot worse than me. As a matter of fact I am completely “normal” compared to what they are experiencing. I will go talk to them & share what I am doing to Prepare for what’s ahead in the hopes that they will realize they need to” take care of business” as well. Otherwise I know they are going to be taken advantage of later. Sorry for so much posted today but I thought I better write while it’s all coming to me. It doesn’t happen very often. I ‘ll stop here & start my last one for the day.
