I’ve been writing these posts for—I really don’t know how long now—at least two or three years. During this time, I’ve done my best to be honest and forthright as I’ve expressed how I experience memory and cognitive decline (MCI – Mild Cognitive Impairment) both to help myself and hopefully others as well.
Writing has always been my means of sorting and sifting, of unearthing my feelings and fears, of finding my truth as I put into words what often seems confusing, unfair, or hurtful…as well as joyous and insightful. It therefore felt natural for me to write about my memory and cognitive decline and eventually share with the desire of helping others.
I hope my posts have been of value to my readers and I intend to keep writing, as long as I am able. But I need your input to do so.
Lately I’ve found writing to be more and more challenging. I’ve felt stuck and have often questioned, “What more can I say?” and “Is it time for me to stop?” Yet even as my memory continues to decline and my cognitive skills are lessening, I want to continue to write as long as possible.
This is where I am asking for your help: please send me questions, ideas and suggestions for topics and issues I have not addressed. Do you want me to continue to write of my ongoing mental symptoms of MCI? My emotional changes (oh yes, those darn emotions!)? Would you be interested in me interviewing my husband and daughter about their experiences?
You get the point. I need feedback and suggestions. And you my readers, are the best source of what is helpful and needed. Please send your comments and suggestions via this form. I assure you I won’t ever publish your name or email address. Please don’t be shy. I want and need your feedback and ideas.
I sincerely thank you for reading my posts.
