A peaceful person's experience of Dementia.
Our bodies do not work without our brains.
Dementia is the loss of everything once told you know it is a death sentence. No treatment, no reprieve.You lose your identity straight away, you become a shadow, friends leave because you no longer exist.
Like a mountain we only have one way, down to the bottom. Some slopes you descend are gentle. Others are a big drop whenever know which one is coming how long it takes or how long the plateau will be.
Dementia means we live a different life in our minds to what others see. We suddenly are not capable of doing the things we used to. We are a clumsy child again.Life is confusing, depressing, soul destroying. What does torture try to do?Break your mind. Dementia does that for us
