When Her Body & Mind Became Separated

Another one of those “outerbody experiences”, perhaps???

When her body and mind became separated, it’s like you’re talking AT her, and she’d been on “autopilot mode” of response, with the ability to answer in yes or no, and used only simple words and sentences that don’t make sense to the rest of us.

When her body and mind became separated, what, can we do, to JOLT her mind, BACK into her body?  By SHOCKING her with threats?  But studies showed (don’t ask which ones!!!) that threats is a really BAD way, to get through to someone, isn’t it?  When her body and mind became separated, there’s NOTHING we can do, but to just, wait, anxiously, until she “returns”, and sometimes, it’d be just a few seconds, then, as the day rolls on, the time became longer lasting, and now, she’d drifted for almost fifteen minutes, and, NO matter how hard we SHOOK her, it’s like, she’s O-U-T!

When her body and mind became separated, well, that, is what we have to deal with every single day now, as the progression of her illness goes.  When her body and mind became separated, there’s NOTHING we could do, but to hope, that this current LAPSE of hers will be over………

The Mind Goes Blank

The mind goes blank, and, it’d been happenin’, quite a lot lately, and I can’t figure out W-H-Y!  The mind goes blank, and all of a sudden, I’m in a daze, not knowing where I was, what I was doing, or what I’m about to do, it’s like everything got disconnected, you know???

The mind goes blank, it got “unplugged”, or that the electric current isn’t flowing so smoothly these days, because all the “wirings” are rusty, from the years of usage, and, there’s NO turning back the hands of time, to return my mind, to its working-well, younger days anymore.

The mind goes blank, there’s NOTHING I can do, all I can do, is to wait, for things to get right again, and, there are so many hours a day that I’d have to sit, and stare into space, NOT knowing what I’m about to do, what I’d just finished doing, because the mind goes blank, and there’s NOTHING I can do, to control this miniature “outage” situation…

The mind goes blank, and, it still wasn’t my fault, I’d taken a TON of vitamins when I was younger, to help slow down the deterioration that comes with old age, and yet, old age still H-I-T me, and now, all I can do, is to sit here, and stare, into this big “chunk” of space that I’m in, NOT knowing where, exactly, I am, where AM I???
