November 2011 Alzheimer’s from the Inside Out Reports from between the ears and the heart and spirit of Richard Taylor, a person living with the symptoms of Dementia.

Hello, I’m still here! But this time here means I am home! And I will be here for almost three months!

Trying to catch up right now. The good news is my second book was asked for a second look by publishers in The Netherlands, the U.S.of A., England, Italy (I think), Sweden and/or Finland, Spain, France (I think), and India.

Now begins another 4-6 week wait while they seriously consider it. Thanks to my German Publisher Juergon for exposing the book at the recent Munich Book Fair.

My next big trip is to Alaska!

I am back on my two favorite anti-depressants. I can feel it coming on, like wading through a swimming pool of thickening glue, like being tired and sleepy but unable to sleep for days at a time, like finding my mind wandering and lingering in the shadows of my darkest feelings and thoughts. Little energy produced by my mind or heart.

“I think therefore I am” is about the best I can do. It is easier to find reasons to be mad/sad than it is to feel loved and happy. I am not sure, if it is the travel, the disability, me, air or water pollution, the failure of the supercommittee to come up with a plan, or whatever.

I am working again with Alzheimer’s Disease International on a couple of three ideas I have on how their web site can be more effectively used by people living with the symptoms of dementia. “I Can, I Will” is growing. I am looking for folks from all over the globe to send the site and/or Laura and or I 3-4 minute videos about how you cope with the stigmas of dementia. I hope they will show them at the Alzheimer’s Disease International Conference next March in London, England.

I am pretty sure this “bout” of depression will be swept away by the traditions, love, and joy that comes with Christmas and my family. Getting a very large screen TV and a large dog would also quite possibly quicken my recovery. (2 hints to my wife).
