Dementia is a strange road to travel. You're always wondering if you're walking in the right direction. Sometimes the steps are really difficult, and even scary.

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
