J.B. [Mar. 7th, 2014|12:24 pm]
Tony Grist
J.B. rang to invite my mother out to lunch. He's someone she's known for 50 years at a guess. When my father left Blaw Knox Engineering  to set up his own company J.B. was one of the two chaps he took with him.

She couldn't remember his first name even though he'd just told her. "Ah, yes, John." And when she was signing off- and she was writing the appointment in her diary- she said, "I've forgotten your surname " and he had to tell her again.

It hurts.

You want to be angry but there's no-one to be angry with.

I'm so sorry.

sometimes, I think it would be nice if we just had a "everything shuts down" date, as opposed to what we have, which are minds that go ahead of the body, or bodies that decay ahead of the mind. It seems so unfair.

It needs more work, definitely.

Perhaps medical science will find a solution. I'd like to think so, anyway.

That's harsh and just hard to witness.

These things happen on a daily basis.

It sounds as though she at least knows she has forgotten something. That's not much to hold on to, but it's better than her being totally out of it.

Parts of her brain are working fine. For instance she does the crossword every day- and often completes it.
