GENRE: Non-Fiction Memoir
Readers will recall in September of 2013 and at the age of 57, Tim was diagnosed with early onset dementia. He was referred to a neurologist at London Health Sciences Centre – Parkwood, in south-western Ontario. Further physical and cognitive testing aroused the suspicions of the neurologist and Tim was referred to a neuro-ophthalmologist and a movement disorders specialist. In August 2014, just weeks away from Tim’s 58th birthday he was diagnosed with PSP – progressive supranuclear palsy. Frontotemporal dementia was concerning enough, but now he had to live with the fact of a life limiting illness. A disease that would steal him away bit by bit… inside and out. A journey with a certain ending. With a candid narrative he continues to share with readers his physical, mental wellness lamentations and their effects on the family dynamics. But Tim’s journey is more than these. More importantly for him, it is about a journey of unwavering faith in God, no matter the outcome.

Read an excerpt

My lunch is over, and the meds are working their magic, it’s nap time. Luba came upstairs with me to make sure I got there. As she was leaving the room, I began to brush my teeth, but instead of toothpaste I used Voltaren Emulgel™. SHIT!!! I yelled. She ran back into the room. A panicked look on her face, it didn’t take her long to assess the situation. I had to rinse my mouth out several times with real toothpaste. FYI – Voltaren is a topical cream used for sore muscles and joints. It’s not guaranteed to make your teeth white but will help if your gums are sore providing you can stomach the taste.
