social, health, political imagery through the lens of George J Huba PhD © 2012-2019

In retrospect, the most difficult time in dealing with my dementia was the first few (about three or four) years. In the beginning, the symptoms of dementia hit me like a jackhammer and everything in my life became a crisis because I did not have the skills and tools to deal constructively with my new limitations, cognitive reality, and my shrinking universe. With a lot of help from family and friends and caring agencies, I did build up skills that have permitted me to learn how to “control” my new medical reality.

I write a lot about how I dealt with the problems caused by the dementia constellation of symptoms. I live well 10 years after the recognition of my neurodegenerative disorder(s).

Here’s where I was in 2010 before I learned how to approach the control of dementia. My message now is that it is possible to learn skills and tools that can improve the quality of life with dementia.
