    No one expects you to apologise for your dementia Norrms. The dementia should apologise to you.

    Sorry I can’t give you an answer How or Why your still able to continue writing and talking publicly so well with a diagnoses of Dementia maybe it’s because it’s something you enjoy doing and you are really good “ well you are very good at actually “ in my opinion how other see or accept your ability in my view their problem not yours So Don’t Apologise , I’m sure you will continue writing and talking let’s hope it will carry on for many years

    Wow! Just blown away, like you spoke for me, like the words came out of my mouth. I am so tired of hearing "well you don't look like you have dementia .... '

    I can't thank you enough for this video, especially today, you're such a wonderful voice for all of us
