Anyway  Her dog a Jack Rusell has Kennel Cough , Sister in Law took them to Vets yesterday Dog was Given a Jab of Anti Biotics and some tablets , Plus vet said get some Benylin

Will help suppress the Cough . Any way  the Mrs gave her a call this morning Asked how things are , Mum replied my Chest feels great took some of that cough mixture last

dreadful Disease lucky , had a friend who,s father got it early in his 50s ,sadly by the time he was 60 he could not recognize his son ,His father died , sadly my friend died a year after of a massive heart attack he was only 40  had 4 kids , watching his father had taken such a toll on him
I believe that's what led to his death Sad The stress of trying to care for someone with dementia can be immense Sad

top tip *dementia can be immense
Tagging helps so they don't get lost , helpful reminders, routine
Live long enough expect,plan for system failures

Watch how mental health explodes thanks to government policies
Only the beginning

, I've done care work and seen the reality of it, it shocked me a bit at first

Gave me the motivation to quit drinking and smoking and take my diet seriously, I try and follow a plant based diet, there's no guarantee but hopefully the way I livr means it's unlikely I'll get it fingers crossed

Dreadful  1tp ,there are some Medicines that seem to help some people ,they don't appear to be in our case ,We had seen a specialist (NHS) who confirmed what was going on ,I am trying to take a short course on Dementia awareness ,waiting to start it have been for two weeks now ,its provided by our local council  yours may do the same ,it is an online course 4 hours there are others can be done ,Might be of some help ,
its free ,worth a look at Adult learning service provided by your local council .
