Away From Her
Dorian Martin's latest SharePost has hit a nerve with me. And filled me with great dread about the future. I recognize myself in the main character of the movie, just by what Dorian has described. I have an awful disjointed time when I try to talk with others. I often have to stop and search for the word or words...luckily, my husband waits until I have found what I am trying to say or will help once I've asked for it. Just this evening, while he and I visited with my best friend from high school, I was trying to come up with the name "River Dance" and all I could do was stammer...and start stamping my feet all around, saying "You know...the people who do this on stage..." I often feel like I am playing Charades! I hope that if my condition gets bad that I do not realize that I am lonely when and if I have few visitors. I never ever had any idea life would be like this for me.
