STIGMA

As I lay awake at two am I wonder what today will bring
I will face all challenges head on if I have to even sing
I am told when I sing it rhymes in verse every time
Great amusement and delight to my grandson that it does rhyme
How long, how often will Mentia last
My greatest challenge is to reduce the amount of stigma and put it in the past
Stigma to me is the greatest education factor not of which is the last
Make it your personal quest spread the word and educate all
I tell as many people about dementia and stand tall
Today will be just another day in the life of a person living with Dementia which will stay
No you can not catch it like a cold
No need to avoid me like you have been told
If you know me well, I am still here, even though I may not remember your name

Yes its still me I am still the same

One thought on “STIGMA

  1. Before I forget...

    I love the lines:

    No you can not catch it like a cold
    No need to avoid me like you have been told
    If you know me well, I am still here, even though I may not remember your name

    We all need to keep shouting it loud!
