A lazy Sunday reblog from 2012… partly about my diagnosis, and also on how distasteful the notion of being shut away in an activities room doing something truly mindless (to me) like Bingo is. Some of the comments on this blog are interesting too.
It ends by saying:
“Please don’t simply shut us away in the activities rooms, doing things others perceive we might enjoy or get meaning from. Ask us what we want, who we used to be, and then work with us rather than for us, in an effort to allow us to continue with our lives in productive and meaningful ways.”
