That's great Sarah, I would be there to listen if I lived a few hundred miles closer but I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed that you get an appreciative audience and that all goes well. Good luck!

Good luck! It will be great. When we went in our local training it was very useful and the lady gave her training not only as a nurse but as the daughter of someone with dementia.
Go for it and enjoy educating others you are doing a worthwhile job.

Today's the Day

Well feeling nervous today's the day of the talk.

I have advertised it aggressivly so I have no idea of who will turn up!

I am going to read through the notes and then go for a quiet walk

This afternoon I will be decorating cupcakes

My t shirt arrived in time and an extra 50 badges

I made 28 new Dementia Friends

The talk went well according to the feed back!

I have been asked if I could do it again so it can't have been too bad, a guy put me on the spot about my own story at the end and he said he found that the most inspiring bit.

I went straight from there to A&E where one of my best friends had been sent in with a suspecte DVT (She hadn't got one thank goodness) She said she had been sitting there praying' God please send Sarah, please send Sarah!'
Got to bed at 3.30am stayed the night at my friends house and I am now back at home and I have got a friend from Belper staying for the weekend:eek:

Will have to take it easy when I can!
