Christine Bryden was 46 when she was diagnosed with dementia, and in this book she recounts the emotional and spiritual rollercoaster she found herself on immediately afterwards. It provides unique first-hand insights into how it feels to gradually lose the ability to undertake tasks most of us take for granted, and is all the more remarkable because of Christine's unwavering positivity, and her deep sense that in spite of the dementia her life continues to have purpose and meaning. Originally published in Australia in 1998, the book includes a new Preface, a contribution from one of Christine's former colleagues and a new appendix in which Christine explains how the disease has progressed and how she is now. It also contains many not-before seen photographs of Christine and her family, from around the time of her diagnosis up to the present day. The prequel to "Dancing with Dementia" this book will be of interest to people with dementia and their families, friends and carers, as well as to dementia care professionals.

Review:

"I am delighted that this book of a first-hand account of dementia is being republished. I know it has been inspirational for many who have dementia and for their families. These days, most people say that they know someone who has dementia, and it is my hope that Christine's words will be read by many others, who will also find inspiration in her journey, her strength and her faith, which have carried her through all this time." --- from the Foreword by Elizabeth MacKinlay

"Christine s story is one of inspiration and strength. A single mother with alzheimer s disease and three young daughters: all that and only in her mid-40s facing another decade of life if she s lucky. But she s already jumped her greatest hurdle - that of facing the unknown. Christine has put that greatest of fears behind her. Who will she be when she dies? A mother remembered and revered by her family and a woman who gave a great deal of herself to strangers." --- Mike Munro, Australian television presenter

From the Author:

Christine Bryden had a high-powered job in the Department of the Australian Prime Minister and was a single mother of three children when she was diagnosed with dementia in 1995. Since then, she has gone on to challenge almost every stereotype of people with dementia by speaking at national and international conferences, campaigning for self-advocacy and writing two books. In 2003, she was the first person with dementia to be elected to the Board of Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI). Christine lives with her husband, Paul, in Brisbane, Australia. Her second book, Dancing with Dementia, is also published by JKP.
