New book on living with dementia planned
Wendy Mitchell is a Join Dementia Research Champion and the author of the widely-read blog Which Me Am I Today? which documents her life living with dementia since being diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s in 2014.
Now the 61-year-old is co-writing a book, Somebody I Used To Know, which will be released by publishers Bloomsbury in January 2018. Wendy has co-written the memoir with acclaimed ghost-writer Anna Wharton, co-author of three other books including Cut, by FGM campaigner Hibo Wardere.
“I used to be a very private person before I had dementia,” explained Wendy. “But when I was diagnosed I was so shocked and appalled at the lack of understanding and awareness that surrounds dementia that I’m now willing to shout from the rooftops at every opportunity that comes my way.”
