I am Your Daughter, Mam
BY JOANNE APPLEBY
Dementia is not glamorous, no matter how you dress it up.
It strips and rips the heart out of your chest, puts it back temporarily, and then rips it out again.
This forthright account, written with searing but agonizing honesty, describes a daughter’s love for her Mam. It emotively and forcefully describes how the condition took away the one and only person she could rely on in life, the one person who gave her everything, unconditionally.
