From The Clouds Comes The Darkness.

Some or many of you know I quit drivnig a long time ago, by my choice because of the danger I was, then my drs. told me not too, they were a litttle behind the curve. Well now the check book has a problem, ME. so the wife has to take that ove now. See they call this MCI (mild cognetive impairment), up my ass. Come live in my brain and tell me how mild this bull is. See how you like it when you stand up turn around and do not know where the hell you are or the wall hits your face or your world spins. Get lost in the talk you are havngi. Set and stare at the computer and not know why you are looking at it. MCI explains it all. The Dr. who first coined this phrase had brain cell farts in my book and sure didn't know mild from a hole in the ground. But of course he knows it to be so, he is smart, right.

Well let me go I need to practice for Moderat Cognitive Impairment, so I don't know what the fuck or what the hell I am doing. That should be fun.

All you caregivers remember MCI and see how you think of it. Your thoughts much welcomed. By the way you Drs. and Holistic nits that send me your causes and cures go away, I have checked out studies and they do not work. Some provide a year or so of added time, then the person is right where they should have been, big service you do. Yes, I was told how herpes causes AD and then had an advertisement at the end of the email for vits and herbs to help cure and slow down. I guess I must really come across as a moron and totaly stupid. But this posts are getting harder and I am getting more, well less friendly and tired.

God Bless,

Dear Joe,
You are a very compelling writer. It bums me out that you have to deal with this and all of the frustration. I am really bummed that people would be assaulting you with their causes and 'cures', although they may mean well, I guess.
God Bless you, I look forward to reading your next blog. You are a better writer than I am.

Joe just wanted to thank you for keeping up the great fight on your blog...I look forward to reading your posts even if you are pissed's part of your reality and that emotion needs to be shared too! Keep up the faith and the good fight!

dragyonfly said... got a right to be less friendly and tired. You keep holding on. We know you are strong and determined.
I'm a nurse and I know what you are talking about with all the conditions reduced to initials. It makes it so impersonal.
I also get mad when someone refers to a patient as "room 3".
People think I'm kinda crazy, too because I speak out.

My father THE DEMENTIA GUY decided on his own to stop driving. It was good because when I was getting the car ready for sale...I saw that he put motor oil in the transmission and coolant...I have no idea how that car survived but it did. At the same time I saw a little bit of my father's spirit die because it was one more thing he couldnt do. So we took lots of road trips that I made him decide where we were going and what he wanted to do. I think that helped him feel better for the moment and more like my dad and not my kid in the passenger seat.
