Hi all, I just had an email thanking me for joining so I thought it polite to introduce myself. I'd just had a really bad day,(my mum who lives with us has vascular dementia). Sulks, incontinance, constantly changing shoes clothes etc., self-pity (mum AND me ... the self-pity bit !).I thought I'd look up dementia and found your site. After reading lots of it I realised that so many were so much worse off than we are.What a selfish person I am becoming! This site is so helpful, positive and informative and reaches so many people. It's great to know there are people who understand. Most of you seem so placid and patient. I'm striving to attain these qualities constantly. Thank-you all for being there.
