The Reality Of Dementia

Dear I’m a Christian,

I just wanted to say that thank you for your mothers day post on Sunday that featured the gentleman with his mother suffering from Dementia because it stirred up a conversation many of us should be having in our homes and communities. Seeing the overwhelming response inspired me to share our story.

My father was diagnosed with Dementia a little over 2 years ago and that was the beginning of the worst time in my life ever. My mother died when I was only 20 and being an only child meant that it was just me and dad left to look after each other. At 28 years old, the last thing I needed to hear was that my dad was likely going to forget who I was.  I had seen other people around me who had “lost” loved ones to dementia and the thought made me numb.

Allow me to further use the word “lost/lose” because that is literally what happens. The only future I saw was a repetition of sitting with someone whom I dearly love but has no recollection of who I am. I think I cried for days and even today, I sometimes still cry.  I know the gentleman’s intentions in making the video were not cruel  but i don’t think i would be able to put my dad through such an ordeal even in the name of raising awareness. However, whilst I can see the negative effects his actions can have on someone with dementia, I also applaud him to some degree because he has stirred up a conversation that many people are not having.

Dementia is real but hardly spoken about except when it is awareness month and that is not enough. So just to encourage anyone who may be going through this with a loved one, please don’t lose heart. Keep on loving and caring for your loved ones. when it gets overwhelming, utilise the many support groups out there. You cant do this on your own.

Thank you

  89. I am the manager of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently looking to broaden my wholesale side of company. I really hope that anybody at targetdomain can help me . I considered that the very best way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape shops and cbd stores. I was hoping if anybody at all could suggest a reputable web site where I can get CBD Shops B2B Sales Leads I am presently examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. On the fence which one would be the very best option and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
