So, I found this video on YouTube about ways to find beauty, joy, and meaning in dementia. Usually, I like TED talks. In fact, I almost always like TED talks. This one especially peaked my interest because
1) it is related to dementia,
2) it promotes a positive message in the title, and
3) my name is also Carrie, and my husband’s last name is Clark – if I were to change my name, I would be Carrie Clark 🙂
So, I’m watching this talk by Carrie Clarke and almost immediately I am turned off. I don’t know if it was the tone of her speaking, or the sound of her voice, but it just made my stomach flip around. That intangible feeling that you know something is bothering you, but you can’t put your finger on why. Although I watched this alone, I literally “Ugh’ed” and sighed out loud. Multiple times.
