The most iconic tv star from such shows in the United Kingdom from Carry On and Eastenders Barbara Windsor; who bravely came out with the help of her husband letting them know that she has Alzheimers, in another words Dementia on 10.5.18. They both decided to come out now about it because they think it’s time before she gets worse; however loads of people all over the country who knew Barbara from different shows, and her charity work that was close to her heart gave their support, love and understanding. There’s always one or two who slammed them to get this a secret; yet reading the article about the complete cock up (excuse the language), Barbara Windsor hasn’t died she’s still living doing her daily activities with the help of her love ones around her, with the public support and understanding that loosing someone that they love and grown up to watch on the tv.
I find that the TV news program very insulting to be quite frankly and very rude to the people who have the disease. They don’t even know how it feels to see a love one who is battling with it; they don’t know what happens behind close doors, or anything like that I for one should know what it’s like day in day out. I have a relative who also battling with the disease hearing that Barbara Windsor was diagnosed with it at age 76 in 2014 now coming out now as it’s becoming worse. It hit home a lot because the person that I love the most in my family was diagnosed with Alzheimers 5 to 6 years ago became worse but manageable now at the moment. It is a lot harder to contend with at the time but they aren’t dead; they are living battling on everyday, I take it as each day comes with them and I try to help out as much as I can but yes it scares me what I may find. At the end of the day they are still my love one; still special to me, and most importantly they still witty and funny when you know they don’t mean what they say to you.
I beg of you please don’t treat people who have Alzheimers like they have passed away because they haven’t; they are still living, they are still human beings at the end of the day and most importantly they need support with their daily lives at the end of the day.
