Loosing my Mum recently with dementia I decided to pen this:
Ode to dementia

You are a pernicious stealer of memories and lives. Robbing the essence of somebody until they are that empty shell of dependent misery.

Distressed anxiety is your modem apparatus, you want to spread your self from the individual to others that surround and support them, grabbing their sanity, peace, and stability.

They say 'become a dementia friend', but you are the enemy the evil that demands that we live with rambling nonsense. A difficult journey of correction, stumbling and then submission to the inevitable irrationality of it all, you really are malevolent creature to live with.

Getting cross at you is a waste of time as you progress your merry way. You invade totally one life but cause others to defend themselves as they endure the erosion normality of those that care. Sacrifice goes unnoticed as dementia forgets they do anything.

Guilt is your twin, the injunction to care bing hard wired, becoming torn between survival and making sure your host is safe, and occasionally happy.

Sometimes you do not win the laughter and the tears emerge and healing can occur. You may have tried to steal Mum but she fought back, her brain attempting to link the destroyed neurones and grasp being in a confused and sometimes frightening world. Sleep is one of our arsenals the brain functioning better, diet is the next, but we will beat you, I know you are the biggest killer of women in the modern world, but we have an army of carers whom dislike you as much as I do and nurture the individual lost inside.

Merry Christmas to you dementia, bah humbug!
