Welcome to the site Sannatjie. I'm so sorry you are going through this. I think it's great that Terry is getting people talking about these issues. As he says - before you can defeat your demons you have to name them. :)

Welcome Sannatjie, very sorry you are going through that. Don't struggle on your own but make the most of the help that's available.

Hi Sannatjie

All the best to you.
Have you tried this alzheimers site? They may be of more help than this one.

But if you want a laugh, stick around here. :lol:

Isn't that akin to Glen Hoddle stating that every person with a disability brought it upon themselves for sinning in a previous life? Image


How on earth can that woman call herself Religous?!?!?!?
I will say this now that I am religous too - and I certainly don't call my ailments a gift from God - from the devil maybe but not from God! I believe that Life is a gift from God. Alzheimers and Senility is NOT A GIFT FROM GOD!


I agree with you completely.
