My mother was diagnosed with vascular dementia in 2010. This is a blog about coming to terms with her absent mind.

Ah well

Ma was up in the night and had a fall. I nearly broke my neck running downstairs. I managed to get her up and she was fine.

This morning she remembers falling but doesn't remember me picking her up. She is in a foul mood and there have been lots of tears. I am gradually realising just how much damage I did to myself - I appear to have sprained three fingers, thumb and wrist on left hand, sprained my right ankle and my back and neck are really stiffening up. Bugger.

Made some piccalilli though :) (I always forget just what a very messy job it is)
