I was diagnosed with Frontotemporal dementia in 2015, but I refuse to let the difficulties associated with my dementia defeat me. In spite of them, I continue to live an active life, working in my garden, cycling and playing ping-pong and badminton. Being open about my condition and remaining as calm as possible in any situation helps me navigate life with dementia, with the support of others when needed.
