Just wanted to report-in here that truly I am experiencing significant benefits, regaining former 'lost cognitive executive functions'
, yes. It is real and true in my experience, for me.
Well, 2012 was for me a total 'wash', wipeout, hard-drive crash, dysfunctional, no life, no social capacity/tolerance, just no capacity to deal with the necesssary/required stuff of maintaining ordinary everyday life, plus all the bureaucracy hoops-to-jump-through re: Medicare and all that complicatedness.
I am simply sitting in amazement and great gratitude of all that I have been actually able to do
, be doing, and have in fact accomplished
in these past couple weeks. Wow.
It's awesome improvement for me.
I cannot attribute it to anything other than the 2 'new' factors of both the insight mediation practice twice daily --> better mindfulness throughout my day(s) and night(s) --- and the Aricept (donzepil).
I feel like "I'm back!"
, yes. And, friends who 'truly know me'
are saying, 'You are back
, aren't you?
We are so glad. We've missed 'you'." I've missed me also!
I'm glad to report-in, that I am yes 'back' and ever so glad to be so. I feel like a human being again, I feel like myself again, I feel like a viable member of my own neighborhood/ town/ community again. Alleluia!!
That's a major improvement, yes, in this year; my year #4.
Nonetheless mind ya, there's still much-much and so more way to go for me.
Mind ya, I'm not
at "100%', or anywhere-near-100%.
Yet, I am
functioning (after 'not' all of 2012) --- and I'm very pleased
with how I am 'handling things'
, the stuff of meeting ordinary everyday life. This is a huge improvement
, and welcomed, yes.
Love & appreciation,
