I get confused with the being diagnosed with Dementia.
Most times I feel i do not have it, Then there are times that do realise
something is wrong.
I am 71 now and find my short term memory not good. But seems that i can remember more long term things.
Multitasking throws me such a curve ball. that is when i get so confused and irritable and make mistakes.
Most times i also get names wrong nut the letters are almost identical.
Just wanted to share...is this reality. when os it going to change??

I always think that people with dementia are like leaves that have fallen off a tree and landed in a river.
they will all bob downstream eventually, but the rate at which they end up at the sea will vary.
Some will stick against the bank for a while, somewill catch the stream and flow, , others will just meander along at the edges all the way.

there will be no two leves that follow the same path or at the same rate, but will progress at their own speed.

I'd try not to worry about it,do what you can when you can, xx
