words of wizdom !!!


excellent saying!!

We have both a weak self and a strong self; the two are completely different. If we allow our weak side to dominate, we will surely be defeated.

we will not be defeated!!!

Hi Angiem so sorry you feel bad have pm you hope you dont mind.

This is one of the the things the Dalai Lama follows :-

“Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future for it has not yet come. Live in the present and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering”.

I have this typed up on the wall by my desk and I read it very day before I start work.

i am struggling so much too-my mum has dementia -i like that saying-god give me the serenity to accept the things i cannot change-and strength to change the things i can-or words to that effect-best wishes all x

ethlydsyl, I can sympathise with you. My dad died from dementia 12 months before I was diagnosed with this. I found his illness a greater strain than mines, it was like he was on a very long and lonely journey that nobody could help him with. I currently have 2 friends struggling with putting elderly parents into homes as they can no longer care for them; a third thinks her mother has the onset of dementia as she is becoming very confused. Really very sad.


A year before my DX I got a call to say that my Dad was terminal with bladder cancer that had spread to his liver.He survived for another 6 months.

It was so hard… 6 months later I was dx,

I really loved my Dad and it was incredibly hard to watch him deteriorate as he did. Now, I have my mum (I don’t have a great relationship with her) who is blind and 85 and it’s so… hard. I look after her, of course I do, but it’s from duty not from wanting.
