Inner pain, no one can see !

Alzheimer’s
My memories waver on the edge of reason,
Trying to be normal is no longer easy
A reprieve would be nice for just one day,
But As I wait it never happens that way
Younger and younger my brain starts to grow
My emotions jumping to and fro,
My limbs they tremble when I walk,
My voice it waivers when I talk.
All the inner pain no one can see,
Stops myself, being me.

Please understand what you can’t see !

Life is for living !

I used to laugh, live and dream ,
Idle summer days, beer and wine.
Children playing,and enjoying my years .
Family, friends and the love of my life,
Memories in the making,
Pictures of the past
I used to be normal just like you,
I loved, laughed ,and dreamed ,too.
The darkness it came and it killed my life,
Despite the love of my family ,and the love of my wife
I slowly sank into my shell
Only surfacing for a short while, feeling like hell,
Fighting and shouting, never giving up !
whilst drinking from, my dementia cup

This was written for all the affected that don’t have a voice anymore, so their families and carers could maybe take a step back and see the person that’s still in there, somewhere ! 😔

Dementia survivor, so far.....

Memories shouldn’t be for just one day
Sitting in the corner shouldn’t be the way
Not speaking, or looking around
Trying not to make the slightest sound
You don’t want to be, a burden anymore
But Daily tasks have become a war
As you go thinner
There is only one winner
Waiting, to die
In a chair, with a sigh !

Memories

Memory is such a precious thing !
you don’t realise how important your memory is until you start to lose it .I don’t mean just forgetting where you put the car keys or where you parked the car this is all part of ageing, all part of natural brain shrinkage. Most of the time all one has to do is stand still, look around and eventually you’ll remember what you wanted to do , or you retrace your steps and you find your car or lost item.
The difference with dementia is that if one should forget something ,that memory is lost forever ! you don’t ever remember . All people seem to do is constantly remind you that you’ve just forgotten . Can you imagine what it’s like to just completely forget where you are ? Or what you’ve done ? Or what you said yesterday or even five minutes ago ! it’s horrific and no sufferer wants constantly reminding or prompting , please 😉😉
