This wall was built by Dad both before and after dementia.
Yep, it's all rather gloomy-doomy as our favorite vampire slayer might say, but against our foe dementia: We will win!
"Be Brave. Live."
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BvTS) with Sarah Michelle Gellar:
"The Gift." Season 5, Episode 22
Howdy! It's Buffy from Texas. Am not a scientist or soothsayer (and suck as a vampire slayer) but feel chosen to write about how to fight dementia after watching too many families and friends suffer and die from Alzheimer's Disease.
Right now, many smarties ("Scooby Gang") are learning how to slay the dementia monsters through rigorous scientific research.
Sometimes, between COVID-19 and all global struggles, it feels like we are living in episodes of my favorite TV show (and own namesake) Buffy the Vampire Slayer. During this journey, would recommend watching both: Buffy and its spinoff series, Angel, for creature comforts and quotable inspiration. Consider them prequels to the fight against dementia as well as kick-ass TV.
Today, if I don't fight, then am likely to die from dementia based upon own family history. May these pages serve as your wise tome along with Buffyverse wisdom to help illuminate the abyss.
By helping each other, we can each change how the story goes before our soundtrack swells to: The End.
"Going through the motions. Losing all my drive. I can't even see, if this is really me, and I just want to be: Alive!"

"The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are."
