Hi Lilac Blossom,Hello folks, can I join the "I miss normal conversation" club?
I know what you mean about forgetting how to chat - dementia steals first place and robs us of the opportunity to have a wee blether. I went to the hairdresser on Tuesday and thought oh good there will be lots of chatter, none of it relating to dementia. Ach I was disappointed, the hairdresser was not in a chatty mood, didn't respond to anything I said other than oh! really! or fancy that! but no more. I felt a bit cheated as normally hairdressers have a fund of not-very-important topics of conversation.
OH has vascular dementia so no proper conversation at home.
Sorry to hear about your OH.
When mum is on a loop and my sister also constantly repeats things I end the day wondering if I am losing the plot too. Just to be able to refer to the weather (hurricane Abigail), the news - the terrible things happened in Paris. They are normal things that everyone outside this bubble we are all in talk about. It is already making a difference to my day just being able to do this.
