Fear effects our dreaming

Great post from Kate again today.

Fear

Diagnosed with dementia

Too often brings us intense fear

Worry for our future

Our losses

Then

Loss of reason

Inability to think clearly

Leaving us immobile

Or raging

In fight or Flight

Or somewhere in between

Nightmares and worrying

Tempting us to give in

To give up

Don’t let fear cripple you

Find a way, any way

To rise above it

And to live beyond

The diagnosis of dementia

Don’t let the fear of dementia

Kill your dreaming, or

Stop you from living.
