My 51st birthday 

I had a great 51st birthday…

I stayed at my nephew’s house with the great-kids there to bring it in and we were up at 6am – not through excitement – but because the youngest great-kid, who is just 7 months old, was up… and that everyone else was, bless him!

At around lunchtime my nephew’s partner and the great-kids had a walk into Kirkby town centre and we did a little shopping before going to see my Mam and Mac at Loxley Lodge. My Mam, obviously wasn’t aware that it was my birthday, but she was in a lovely mood, and because of this, made the day much more pleasanter – my stepsister arrived and brought me my birthday cards from my Mam and Mac and also from her and after about 2 hours we headed off back to my nephew’s house, where my nephew’s partner had made us all spaghetti bolognaise for tea.

After that, we just chilled for the rest of the evening and I was in bed for 10pm – that must be part of getting old!

A great day with all the family that matters to me and who bother with me – and I couldn’t have asked for anymore than that. A great day and a wonderful birthday as a bonus!

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!
