No regrets.

I often struggle with negative thoughts which sometimes lead me to a self-made circle of doom. "It's your fault." "This is a punishment for your past mistakes." It's overwhelming. At a certain point, it stops. That happens when I force myself to look at what I have now. My family, my friends, my life experiences, my success stories; they are everything that defines me...

A Memorial Day Wish

Good day all, I am a veteran with PTSD. I found out late in the game that, for me at least, talking about what triggers your PTSD episodes will help with not only lessening the effects, but it will help keep you healthy as well. Stress, heart related problems due to that, clogged vessels, etc....This is going to make my time...

Comforted

I enjoy creating these videos for my daughter and son.  By leaving these behind, I know they'll always have a part of me around and they won't feel so alone. They'll be able to feel their mother's love and hear their mother's wisdom. I know that they can listen to my voice say, "I love you" over and over again. My daughter...

Stay On Your Best Behaviour

Hi, my name is James and I have lung cancer. In a support group the other day we were asked how we are handling the day to day facing of our own mortality. We all have to go sometime, but those without a disease of some sort know they will probably live longer than those of us who have something. That...

I still care about the world.

Dealing with a terminal illness takes a lot of focus and energy. I work on keeping my thoughts and heart in check, staying positive and supportive of each other. It seems so easy to lose ourselves in sadness and fear if we forget to do that for a second. Sometimes it's just different. I hear about the space exploration and I'm...

The Beautiful Death of My Aunt Lily-Anne

Recently mum and I found a way to re-connect by sharing family photographs. One person figured in a lot of the photos from my father's family. His sister, my Aunt Lily-Anne. We have many happy memories of her and, inevitably, we got around to talking about her death when she was 54. Which really was a beautiful death and has...

All the small things - Pt. 2

Since people seemed to enjoy my last entry, I'm writing up another list of some of the small, awesome things that happen in life. I'm always looking to add more things to my list, so please, leave me a message on the message board (a feature I love but sadly never use), on my introduction thread, or shoot me a...

A time to love myself

I was talking about communication in the forum, but right now I just want to take time for myself. It has been an exhausting journey so far with some joyous moments here and there. I feel like I can lose them all if I don't take time to slow down and remember. Taking time for ourselves is as important as giving...

More Than My Disease

I created this list when I first learned I had dementia.  I guess I just didn't want to lose myself.
I AM MORE THAN MY DISEASE!
I am resourceful.  I can make clothes in a snap in any style, I can grow nutritious food in the poorest dirt, I can fix most things around the house.
I am gregarious.  I...

All the small things



I talked about this briefly in the forum, but I wanted to speak a little bit more about it here.

To keep things light in my videos (and in my life), I've been collecting a list of small things that have brought me joy. It makes me feel like I'm able to...

We Are Not Old, We Are Comfortable!

My lung disease has progressed to the point where I've become a homebody, just sitting in the recliner hooked up to oxygen, watching television. It's been a little lonesome, even with family here because they have work and school and just go about their daily lives. We'll, I adopted an old dog a month ago. Beau, that's his name, is...
