Dementia: The Goal Posts Have Shifted

Image result for just breathe pictures

Maureen’s dementia has changed its approach: playing a high press.

I need to revise my tactics at a time I’m short of fit players.

There were moments yesterday when I was totally outplayed.

I didn’t hear or understand my coaches’ message.

Thankfully, my Key Worker is back today.

The opposition is  resting peacefully.

I’ve not had enough decent sleep.

A sinus infection is developing.

Have to blow rather gently.

Must breathe very slowly.

Play for time.

Be patient.
