The Zen Of Dementia
My name is Chamundi. I took this photo of Monterey at Thanksgiving of '04 while staying at the IYH Hostel there.
Realizing that you have EOAD (Early Onset Altzheimer Disease)leaves you feeling a bit like that small island. Within sight of shore (safety, everyone else, coherence). But not touching.
After a life time of sensitivity, communication & organization skills, those are gone. You find yourself, if you are to survive to all, constantly dancing between respecting your boundaries & total self involvement.
