You weren't the only one. It's so hard watching someone -- even a fictional character -- make the same mistakes you've made (and may make again and again) yourself. It hurts more somehow because Glenda's acting is so authentic and detailed and heartbreaking. I burst into tears again when she was wandering through the park swinging her bag in the same way my Mum used to.II couldn't help crying at the point where the daughter shouted at her mother.
I hadn't watch Casualty for many years but heard about Duffy's character having Dementia so did a back to back watch on iplayer. I am not up to date yet. But so far thought it made a change to see dementia portrayed at this level. Where the character has capacity and she was still able to have work. ..although not at the level she previously did. It will indeed be interesting to see how they follow this on.Looking forward to it, I have read the book. I am following how Casualty is deal with dementia too. Last Saturday was a bit unrealistic for most of us but will see how it pans out.
