Hello world!

Here I am, 59 and have a problem with my memory.  I have trouble remembering things.  I have been thinking about what this means, right now, today and for tomorrow.  What are the implications of forgetting conversations you had a day, or an hour ago.

We create our memories as we live day to day, lovely memories of our husbands, wives, children, friends and pets.  But, what if we forget things on a daily basis and remain aware that we are doing just that without the knowledge of what we are forgetting?    I don’t know why or what is happening and may feel less uneasy when I have more information.

Right now I will record some memories through writing and photographs for myself and my family.

I was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's in Dec 2012 aged 58 after 20+ years of memory and other cognitive difficulties. It was both a relief and a shock getting the diagnosis. But, I am determined to live a happy and productive life with this disease. Enjoy what I can do and push as much as I can physically, mentally and emotionally will always be my mantra :) My plan is to live simply, create a wildlife garden for birds and bees to enjoy when I can no longer garden.

Happy to hear your thoughts...
