A wobbly week…

…well it certainly has been for me anyway!

I have had a ‘wobble’ on my gambling – I don’t why, but I just did. It has made things tight for the next fortnight, but as usual, I will get by, and with the help and care of my support worker, we have taken steps for me to be able to ‘lock down’ any vulnerability I have in being able to make the deposits to gamble with.  I’m not going to pack it in (hell, I might as well go to the grave tomorrow if I did that) but when I have my financial situation more secured (I am opening a post office account, so as you cannot use money ‘virtually’ like you can with online and telephone banking) I shall be able to appreciate more the value of looking at the cash before I actually spend it – it is one sobering thought to be able to see the amount I have gambled, and I know I would’ve thought twice had I seen the amount in my hands, rather than ‘virtually’ spending it online without seeing it – it does make a difference!

I have found some more family photos today (Sunday) what I had packed away when I moved into ‘BungalHome’ from my old flat – and I have managed to find some room in the bungalow to put them up – I knew I had some, but I was buggered if I cOuld remember where I had put them… I have at long last actually got a photo of my Dad (Ted) up on the wall now – and that is good in itself!

My Mam and stepdad are both doing OK in their carehome and they were really pleased to see me when I went to visit them on Thursday. My Mam flung her arms around me, and to be honest gets rather jealous when some of the other residents come and talk to me – it’s as if I’m her prize possession… which all through her active life, I was – so at least that hasn’t left her!

So an eventful week, one that I hope I don’t repeat regularly for one reason, but one that I hope I do repeat regularly for the visits to see my Mam and stepfather!

My name is Daryl and I was born in October 1965. I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease in June 2011, and I was put on medication, which I believe is helping keep the worst of the condition at bay. In November 2012 I was also diagnosed with the first stages of Parkinson's Disease and I am now two lots of medication for this illness as well. I live in a secure bungalow in an elderly complex in my hometown of Sutton-in-Ashfield and I have support from the social services and a support worker who visits six hours per week to help me live my life as independently as possible. Visit me on my Facebook page... I love life now, and the people in it - so show your support for me and the organisations that support dementia and Parkinson's disease - let's make this small world of ours a much more pleasant place to live in by caring for those that need that little bit more help in life!
