Slipping Into Your Own World

Talking of Lorna, this is a terribly moving and real piece by her boss about his mother’s descent into dementia. It’s well worth a read:

I remember once asking what had happened to her that day, to be told: �A man came in with a very important moustache.� On another occasion I was trying, without success, to explain something to her. When she finally gave up the attempt she announced: �I must be losing my bonkers!� When I was trying to give her some exercise (how long ago that was) I asked her if she could walk: �I don’t think any of me could walk,� came the eloquent response.
