    When Grief Comes Back

    Dear Toony Oony, I'm sorry to hear about your mum and like you I am glad that my parents never saw the lockdown and that I don't have to worry about visiting dad in the care home. When dad passed away I had lots of dreams of him, mum and nana and then I dreamt that mum and I were caring for him...

    A few weeks seems a long time but hopefully you'll a little better tomorrow. If it seems worse it might be an idea to phone the physio again. On the bright side at least your husband was entertained. MaNaAk

    what was the first thing you noticed that could be dementia?

    You Like @Rosettastone dad said half his memory had gone but I didn't have serious concerns until his sister-in-law passed away in early 2015. He started putting things in odd places before talking about people who weren't there. I used every trick in the book before doing what @GrannieG has...

    When Grief Comes Back

    Dear @Grahamstown, It's good you can talk to your daughter about your husband. I can't really talk to my brothers about dad although I hope to resolv the issues with them but I can talk to other relatives in Malaysia on messenger and I have a lot of friends. Like you say it's the small things...

    Going Through Documents!

    Dear @May30, I'm sorry to hear about your dad. Take things slowly and don't rush. If anything brings back certain memories keep it. I am also having to think about what I need to keep for probate. Like @Susan11 you are wonderful and my thoughts also go out to your mums. MaNaAk

    Going Through Documents!

    Dear @Susan11, I'll be thinking of you this week. My parents met in the ballroom as well and their relationship progressed from their. You may have some of my other threads and know that I may have to move at some point so that's why I will be putting some things aside for me to keep. MaNaAk

    Going Through Documents!

    Not sure whether anyone's read this update but it is good type on here when the grief comes back like it did when I went through these documents today. It's difficult dealing with this when you live on your own. MaNaAk
