Bipolar & Dementia

from Kitt O’Malley

Kitt O'Malley

I fear dementia. Both of my parents have dementia and live in a memory care community. They love one another and seem happy where they are now, but it took a while to make that happen. They wanted to maintain their independence. Understandable.

I fear dementia. Though I hope by avoiding alcohol and taking my bipolar medications, I can stave it off. (Alcohol is a neurotoxin, and I have a family history of alcoholism.)

Still, I fear a downward spiral. That fear I want to overcome. Face it. Stand up to bipolar disorder and dementia. Take care of my brain.

Even if my bipolar disorder progresses, even if I get dementia, I can still love and be loved, just as my parents still love and are loved.

Most of what I know I’ve taught

Myself,I’m one of last Renaissance

Man,a hopeless romantic,and a

Head with many hats, all I do

Is watch,and for the most part

I figured it out,whatever the it

Happens to be,writing,my art

Cooking,it’s all my own doing

All I was, was introduced to

Blogging,the rest is history all

8 hundred followers w/0

Of rejection,all for being a

Meeting, the rest hasn’t

Been written yet,I hope to

Be here when the time come


My friend Robert nominated me for a respect award

Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam Catch-Up

Thistledown Girl

Sunday, August 6, 2017

As if by magic, August is already here.  I can’t believe this serial, Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam is already a month old.  I thought it would be a good idea to do this catch-up post for any new readers.  

This is a “pantser” story.  That means I’m flying by the seat of my pants, with this completely unplanned tale.  Most of my inspiration comes from the characters to which readers gave names when I started this project.  I don’t know what the plot is going to be, from one episode to the next until I look at a character’s name and think about what that faery would be, do, or where they would live, or how they would act.

If you’ve seen this serial in your “reader” but didn’t want to come in at the middle, here are links to all the episodes.  There is also…

The 2017 Respect Award

I give this award out once a year as a way to acknowledge
and show respect to fellow bloggers.

I respect you because, you’re compassionate, witty, interesting,
rebellious, imaginative, patient, open-minded, and creative.

I respect you because you are generous with your words and
support; you walk your talk.

I respect you because you raise my spirits and make me smile.

I respect you because you make me a better blogger.

I respect you because you make me feel human.

Nominees don’t have to do a thing.  Nada.  Nothing.

I’ve done my best to avoid nominating people who don’t accept
awards.

But again, this is a no obligation award.
