I was 54 years young when I was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s
Valentines Day 2019, don’t think I will ever forget that day. Well I might do, seen as I have Alzheimer’s and my memory will deteriorate.
The diagnosis it me hard, and after feeling sorry for my self for a week or so, I came to the conclusion, I was still me and I haven’t just suddenly changed, I have two choices,
1. Sit back and let Alzheimer’s take over and deteriorate quicker
2. Live my life the best i can and enjoy every minute
I chose the second one
I finish work not long after my diagnosis at the end of March 19, another emotional time, hard to come to terms with but I now keep my self busy, I walk every day, love gardening, crafting and at the end of the day I am still Me! Just because I have a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s does not mean I have just changed over night.
I am at the beginning of my Alzhiemer journey!
So I hope you will join me, as I tell my honest, down to earth story, just what it’s like for me to live with this disease, my sidekick Alzheimer’s
