  • Terry Pratchett's Alzheimer's Speech in Full

    Thanks so much for posting this speech. My dad has just been diagnosed with early on-set alzhemeirs aged 55 and posts like this about Terry are a real help. I wish there was some way to communicate with him directly, I want to thank him for making the programme he did for the BBC. In some ways I wish he hadn’t because it was the thing that prompted me to ask the medics to look into my dads supposed depression further, which has uncovered this dreadful disease, but in other ways I realise it was the best thing to do because at least he is now on tablets to help slow it down, which hopefully will lead to some extra years with him. Which is so important to me as I’m a daddys girl with the best dad in the world and any extra moments I can have with him and his love the better and richer i know my life will be.
    Thanks once again
    Big hugs
