Sadly this weekend I realised that my memories of mum are becoming tarnished with this hateful disease. I'm struggling to remember what she was like before her illness (it's been four years since she first started showing real symptoms). As time goes on will it be harder and harder to remember the person she once was? I also feel really sad that mine and my sisters children will never know their real grandma - all they'll remember is mum since she's been ill. It's not a major thing I know but it's sad isn't it? I was thinking of making a memory book with photos and get everyone to write in their favourite memories of mum pre dementia but it feels a bit morbid like she's already died or something (which in someways she has because there's really no remnants of the woman she once was but I'm sure not everyone will feel that way).
