溫蒂.蜜雪兒、安娜.沃頓《即使忘了全世界,還是愛著你》摘要

「而大腦有另外一個部分,與先前那個搖搖欲墜的層架不同,它是負責貯存我們情緒的書架,這個層架十分穩固牢靠。當失智症試圖搖晃這個層架時──就像是罹患失智症前後的兩個你──宛如兩個板塊在堅實的地表下相互撞擊。然而這個書架十分堅固,因此書架上的書不會輕易崩塌。也許你會忘記家人或是友人近期造訪過你,那是因為短期記憶層架上的書倒塌下來,但是你對於愛、幸福和自在的感受卻仍然存在。你或許忘記自己做了什麼、說了什麼,但是當你看見令你感到安穩與幸福的東西時,這一切感覺便會湧現。所以即使罹患失智症,這些過往的感受並不會消失……」

我一直希望自己能夠盡量繼續工作,不過想隱瞞生病這件事,一天比一天更難做到。實際上,這變得比工作本身更加令我筋疲力竭…我環顧四周,發現我並不希望同事對我寄予同情,或是遭到上司質疑我的工作能力。然而我究竟還能夠隱瞞事實的真相多久?我知道我必須說實話,免得失智症的情況日益嚴重…

我向上司提議在家工作的想法,這麼一來我可以安靜地專注在工作上。他同意我的看法,只不過在我踏出辦公室時,他似乎一臉不認同。我害怕的每件事都成真了,對方無可避免對我寄予同情,因為當我關上辦公室的門時,我從他的眼裡看出了這點。
 

溫蒂.蜜雪兒、安娜.沃頓《即使忘了全世界,還是愛著你》摘要

「你們可以把某個失智症患者的記憶想成是一個跟我身高差不多高的普通書架。他們的記憶就像是書架上一層層堆疊的書。書架最上層的書得踮起腳尖才能拿得到,這一層書架存放的是短期記憶,好比你今天早餐吃了什麼。與肩同高的書架則象徵中年的記憶,我們不費任何吹灰之力就能輕易取得這一層書架上的書。與膝蓋等高的層架上的書則是二十歲左右的記憶。接著一路從膝蓋至腳尖距離的高度,存放的是幼年時期的記憶。罹患失智症患者的記憶就像是存放記憶的書架受到了劇烈的搖晃,毫無例外,每每總是最上層的書架率先倒塌,然後與其他層架上的書混淆在一塊,有時你以為的短期記憶實際上卻來自於早年的記憶片段。這說明了為什麼有些時候你對於童年生活的細節記得一清二楚,卻不記得自己早餐吃了什麼。」

In truth, there’s a strong link between imperfection, unconditional love and post-traumatic growth. If you believe in luck or miracles, be aware of the seven deadly sins. According to Bible, a blessed life is not a life without trails, including the righteous and the chosen ones (1 Peter 1:3-9).God expect us to “rejoice in our sufferings,” because “trials of various kinds” are training to make us “perfect and complete” in character (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27). When your life track differs from your original plan, don’t be scared. It’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” for or those who remain righteous, tender and humble in any circumstances (Roman 8: 28). We fall and we learn. As we learn to humble ourselves, life gets better. The connection between brain and stomach is bidirectional. Excessive sugar intake sabotages our immune system and 70% to 80% of our immunity hinges on our gut health. Memory loss and cognitive impairment are common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, all of which are highly connected to type 2 diabetes. Early signs of Type 2 diabetes include chronic fatigue, irritability, frequent urination, vision problems and slow wound healing. According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), around half diabetic cases experience nerve damage. Depression is prevalent in people with diabetes due to the fact that diabetes causes “structural changes in the brain.” It’s worth noting that muscle plays an incredible role in the regulation of blood sugar levels. There is growing evidence that reduced muscle mass is associated with high blood sugar level. Beyond that, there’s a strong link between sleep deprivation and emotional weakness. Be aware of the power of tenderness, humility and subconscious mind. Be aware of the cost of negative emotions, such as suppressed anger and sorrow. God is watching our every move. God sees through our motives. Every spoken word will be recorded by God. Mental health crisis is sweeping on a global scale, because the core value of capitalism is incompatible with what human truly needs. Money cannot purchase inner peace nor unconditional love. Wealth incurs fair-weather friends, frenemies and snobs. Inner peace is the utmost blessing from God. Do not ignore negative emotions. Take time to deal with your old mental wounds once and for all. 腸胃健康和大腦健康息息相關!健康建議:無糖抹茶豆漿X鹼性飲食X練肌肉。鈣是解痛劑,多攝取鈣的食物或鈣片取代止痛藥。維生素E主修復,可加速傷口癒合,預防留疤。高壓容易緊張族群可多攝取維生素B和鈣的食物。一夜白頭是心理影響身體的鐵證,勿低估負面情緒對身體的傷害,包括生悶氣或憂傷!(詳情請參看網站醫療專欄)
