People close to me say I am still "High Functioning". They say I do not look like I have dementia. They even say only I know I have LBD! Nothing could make me more angry!!
I applied for and was granted a "Disability" retirement from Civil Service because I could no longer remember how to do my job! Social Security granted me "Disability" retirement. At NO TIME did I use an attorney to fill out any of these forms or applications. I filled them out, had my Neurologist fill out the medical issues and submitted them!! They were approved, first time in!
Look folks, I have Lewy Body Dementia, ad I will no get any better, any time!! And just because YOU can't seal with my condition does not mean I do not have it!!
Please give me the common courtesy to admit I am ill and in a diminished state. I am sick and tired of trying to hold myself up to your expectations!! If you cannot accept my condition, then leave me alone!! You "Rose Colored" assessment of m medical condition is neither wanted or correct.
Just leave me alone! And stop trying to make me feel better. It only upsets me, as you should be able to see.
