A Christmas wish…

A Christmas wish from Kate Swaffer

Screen Shot 2015-12-11 at 9.59.54 am

Yes, I am suffering…
but only some of the time
not every moment of every day

And, importantly…
not always from dementia
more often from the language of dementia

The symptoms of dementia
do not consume me
one hundred percent of the time

Only some moments
of some days
and definitely not all days

So why then must others
with and without dementia
exacerbate the suffering and stigma

by labelling me
a sufferer
ALL of the time?

Please do not label me a sufferer
This is my one and only
Christmas wish
