Norman Mc Namara about "The Lewy Body Soldier"
by Norman Mc Namara
Have you ever sat down and ASKED someone with Dementia what it FEELS LIKE ?
Have you actually ASKED them about THEIR thoughts on it, what its like to live with this awful illness and the HORRORS that come, or may come their way? AND, more importantly their HOPES and DREAMS for the future? Because they do have them!!
When you, or someone you know, knows someone whom has just been diagnosed with dementia, who better to ask, than someone who has been through the mill, the upsets, the shock and the wall of bureaucracy "What do i do now " ??????
Hello, my name is Norrms Mc Namara and eight years ago, aged just 50, i was diagnosed with dementia, the Alzheimer's type, and then four years ago i was told they had got it WRONG !! Only to be told i STILL HAD dementia, but the lewy bodys type, not Alzheimer's.
I wrote this book to explain that their can be LIFE after diagnosis, to tell people that you dont suddenly wake up in a morning and turn to your loved one and say " WHO ARE YOU "
It doesn't happen like that, its about recognizing the "Critical chain of events that lead up to symptoms becoming noticeably worse and acting on them by getting the right help and medication in the early days, not a cure, but some medication does help.
I am just a family man who wants to help others and show that LIFE can go on after their diagnosis and have had some wonderful reviews about the book.
I hope it helps you
