    I Know, But Should I... If I Have It!? Do You Know?

    I was diagnosed with Altzeimer's three years ago and am very aware of gradually getting into increasingly bizarre difficulties. But I enjoy life and it is never boring! My husband, friends, church etc are incredibly supportive, so much so that I often don't notice!

    Alzheimer's it it then...

    Welcome Arthur. I was diagnosed with Alzheimers 3 years ago and it is a wonderful excuse to give up things you enjoy less and take up things you had no time for. Have you a bucket list to accelerate so that you have a better chance of remembering? I have taken up painting with my new lack of...

    Cycling 100 miles at 73 and 4 years after diagnosis

    I got to the Alzheimer's Society training session last Thursday unaccompanied, although I did need some help getting out. I met my fellow team members who are riding to raise money for the society. I am riding to show I can!

    Driving with altzheimers

    I took some driving lessons when first diagnosed which built up my confidence. The DVLA then refused to licence me anyway but my specialist said I could still cycle. So now I am pretty fit and entering the RideLondon in aid of Alzheimer!s Society.

    Forgetting words & getting muddled

    Good to hear from a fellow, Talking round lost words is effective as explained by one of Alan Aickbourn's talking heads. Or relaxing in hope another path to the missing word will come if you stop worrying. As for cards....write on a piece of paper and enclose it or stick it in.

    What does dementia feel like?

    Back after a year with thoughts on my dementia I need a picture of my situation which will help me, and I hope others, to cope with my deteriorating ability. As a child I pictured my soul as a see through pear shaped blob located in my thorax. At Oxford a humanist friend announced she...

    Hello on 24 January 2016

    I managed to retire from teaching some years before diagnosis but am glad I don't have to teach any more! I guess your position is more painful but hey! no more classrooms to face.

    Hello on 24 January 2016

    I was diagnosed with Alzheimer's about a year ago. I am coming to terms with increasing memory loss. I have acknowledged my problems to friends, colleagues and family, who have been outstandingly supportive. I thank God for them and his care shown through them. An unknown country lies ahead...
