Welcome! On this website I share my story of coping with the effects and affects of Intimacy and Aging and my personal journey with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). My postings will include my journal entries and essays as well as pertinent medical and educational information on both topics. Additionally I hope to hear from you my readers—so we can all learn together.
The dual topics on this site are conditions many people face during a lifetime—but rarely discuss openly. It is our cultural norm to avoid discussions about sex and mental illness. And yet, I’ve learned time and again from my own experience that silence serves no purpose other than to perpetuate isolation, stigma and shame. It is only through honest, open dialog that we are able to help each other travel through unexplored territory.
I hope you find my postings useful and informative, and I welcome your comments, suggestions and insights. You can read my writing by selecting a button below. If you’d like to receive new posts by email, you may subscribe to the mailing list.
