Christmas eve..reflecting on my diagnosis

Well, I have had two scans of my head.  One revealed that my frontal lobe is smaller than it should be..the second that my brain shows abnormalities…….diagnosis…..Alzheimer’s.

The worst diagnosis ever..the very thing I feared.  I was hoping for just attention deficit..nothing more.

SHIT….

Turns out every time my mother hit my head (most days) it damaged my brain.  She has vascular dementia and is away with the fairies now.  No point in being angry of what she did to me, and my life that I could have had.   Time to just live each day as if its my last, live each day and hope I remember it.

Happy Christmas!
