If I Lose My Memory

I always used to joke about being forgetful by saying" "Everything will be new again!" NOT TRUE. Some things will be incomprehensible and downright frightening as they have been a few times lately. Further tests will be done this month but there is no cure for any of the various forms of dementia. I knew how to get to the doc's office today but stumbled a few times filling out the forms. I got home without incident but couldn't find the credit card I used to pay the $100 office call. I didn't remember our address but did when I got home. I've been very tired and thought it's the MS or my blood sugar or perhaps leukemia because I have all those symptoms too. Thank God for spell check or this wouldn't make much sense! One never knows what life holds and now I'll really experience that. I am trying to remember what I don't want to forget. I like to read but keep losing track and George wants me to stay away from the stove for awhile. Salad and peanut butter is going to get old - I think. I just wanted to say I will not be here much and I will miss you all.

Sorry to hear the bad news. Take a deep breath and relax. One day at a time. Be kind to yourself.

Love and light.

I remind you that cayenne improves blood circulation and regulates blood pressure. At breakfast and bedtime take 2 teasp cayenne
1 teasp honey, 1 teasp cinnamon
in a glass of water.
I have been reading you since you lived in the bus. I will miss you if you leave us. You are much woman.
