Day by Day

As each hour passes day by day,
Sometimes struggling what to say,
Fog and clouds inside my head,
Cannot speak what should be said

Hear My Cries

Voice`s fading, not through age,
Dementia building it`s sound proof cage,
Listening in but nothing out,
Unable to talk but able to shout

Confusion reigns, tear stained eyes,

Disappearing without a care

Alzheimer’s And The Flu

I started with the flu on New Year’s Eve, just a shiver and a runny nose at first. Then it all went downhill from there culminating in one of the worst nights we have ever had last night.

Alzheimer`s On Christmas Day

I have nine grandchildren, two of which live in Australia, one who still lives in the north of England, and six who were in the same front room as me on Christmas day.
