    Nikita, keep watching. Agree with you the storyline has been well done, so far.

    Feel sure, as they have been in contact with the society that it will continue in the same vein. Regards Connie

    Funny but my Mother sat watching Coronation St

    Asked what was wrong with Mike Baldwin .......told her he is loosing his memory .........her reply ........oh i know all about that !!!

    However if you try to tell her she has forgotten things or query whats shes babbling about you get your head snapped off and the response that its you thats mad not her

    This in and out of "normality" mode is beyond a joke for the poor relatives

    No wonder I have a bottle of parecetomol saved up specifically for myself if i get that way

    Hello all

    My mum was watching Corrie and when she saw the Mike Baldwin scene, she said "oh, he's losing his marbles." And, "I'm glad I'm not the only one." She then goes on to say that there's nothing wrong with her, that it's everyone else. Hey ho ...

    Hope you and yours have survived the holidays as best you can. I've kept mum occupied so far and we're doing OK.

    Best wishes to you all and will post again soon.

    Hi Pam, appreciate that you must feel the storyline is moving too quickly, as I think our loved ones are progressing along pararllel lines. Yes, looking back things have taken much longer.

    However I know that this story has mirrored quite a few lives out there, which is distressing. To work on TV however I don't think you could use tooooooooo long a run in to the story, as it would not register.

    Just hope it will bring dementia inot the public a bit more, and maybe if only one or two people realise they are not alone, it will have done a lot a good.

    Connie.

    Aaarrrrrggggghhhh!!

    Here in Canada we've just got past Katie's death. I did know about Mike Baldwin getting AD by cheating & looking ahead online but I've stopped that now. It's not any fun.

    I hope they do it properly also but I agree with Connie, TV doesn't usually run a very long storyline. Almost as though TV viewers all have AD & can't follow a long term story. Now that's ironic for us.

    Website flagged up?

    hI eVERYONE
    I don't watch Corrie but caught a couple of episodes over Christmas. To the 'Powers that be' do you think it would be helpful to have the website flagged up as the credits roll?

    a A couple of months ago the BBC aired a series called Beyond Boundaries which was about 12 physically disabled people trekking across Nicaragua and at the end the BBC's Ouch! disability forum website was flagged up. As a disabled person myself the Ouch website rapidly became a great source of information and support.
    Even it it helped only one person out there it would be worth it, don't you think?

    There is supposed to be a link from the ITV website to the Alzheimer's website, but I looked tonight and couldn't see it anywhere. Did it happen ? or was there a change of plan ?

    It's on the Helplines page, the link is on the lefthand side in the list starting with Home and underneath 'Corrie Bingo'! It's not very obvious, is it?
