After nearly 6 months of medication from my consultant I seem to have broken free of the regular graphic nightmares, which is wonderful.
I still get the occassional grim night but these are getting few and far between.
I confess that I do not miss these horrors, as they were terrible. I don't sleep well as I am just as tired when I wake up, but it's a start in the right direction and one I am grateful for, as there is simply nothing worse than these bad nights.
I go back to see my cinsultant later this month, so it's something good to tell her.
Yesterday I felt well enough to drive 40 miles in one go, and that too felt marvellous, as I was close to giving up driving two months ago. But I think that was to do with the problems with my eyes. This problem has also cleared, so I am still selective about when I do things these days.
I do not wish to force myself to do something, which may be difficult when I am having a bad day, as it only gets upsetting when it all fails.
Dementia can cause a lot of upset and distress, but we just have to accept what comes and get the best out of each day, rather than try to give in
Take each day as it comes, and enjoy life while you can still do it.
