Norm-MacSo many of you know Norman McNamara, aka. Norrms on Facebook. He’s an Advocate for all those with Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and their caregivers. I’ve Reviewed and shown many of his books and am delighted to show his poetry as well.

Norman posted another touching poem on Face Book this morning and I thought many of you who struggle with Alzheimer’s, dementia or any memory loss may relate to his words and  feelings after a particularly bad night with Sundowners.

Shaking hands, tiresome bones,
A million friends, yet all alone,
Screaming, shouting, yet no sound,
Disfigured images all around,
Hallucinations come so fast,
Scarred for life, its dye cast,
Sometimes wanting this life to end,
And yet tomorrow, gardens to tend,
Its Lewy Body`s Type Dementia,
That drags me down, stops my adventure,
There is no cure, for this awful curse
Never ending need to nurse,
So here i go, on my weary way,
Trying hard to keep at bay,
This one disease that follows me,
Through lifes path, no one can see,
What it is, we go through,
Unless your close, Unless its you

Norm: “At the age of 50 yrs old I was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.  I am now 53 yrs old and have every intention of beating it! Please join me on my journey, my highs and my terrible lows as I fight –the biggest battle of my life.”
