Interpreter Of Dreams Book Review
This review is from: INTERPRETER OF DREAMS (Paperback)

I found this book profoundly moving and deep. It’s a miracle in and of itself. It had a profound impact on me. Often echoing my own thoughts and words, that are word for word the same. It’s although the author has written it especially for me, without consciously knowing it, and with a clear message to follow my dreams, even down to the minute detail of pursuing love and a future relationship with my asexual Indian soulmate, whom I have never yet met, but whom I feel I am getting closer to, every single day of my life. I intuitively feel him and have known I have a soulmate from the age of 10, maybe I knew him in a past life or maybe only this, but it gives me hope that he may be looking for me also.

I also have many career goals and aspirations like the girl in this book, and I suffer from some of the same anxieties and disturbances. It’s like the chopping and changing of her mind, that changes her thoughts, feelings, emotions and actions, are similar to my own mind, and with similar consequences, so I really related to her. Although she is physically braver than me. This book is even told in a very unconventional and quirky style – just like my personality is quirky and unconventional. This book makes use of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person viewpoints, and slides in and out of each to change the pace and action. This book has so much truth, wisdom and knowledge in it, that is a credit to the author, who has learnt all of this stuff and interpreted it into a wonderful parable, with so much meaning, thought and emotion.

As a published author of non-fiction books, I tend to read what I like to write, and often fiction does not appeal to me and as such, I do not usually take much value from it, but as this book is a parable, that resonated so much with me, I got tons of value from it. It made me think so much about myself and my life, and I love that!

As a fellow writer, I believe, if just one book I write changes one person’s life in such a significant and powerful way, that it may change it for the better, forever, then my life has been worth living even more and my time has been well spent. Thanks Banu for creating this profound, moving and touching book, that has reached parts of my soul that I did not know was possible to reach. I love this book xx

Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy Book Trailer And Second 5 Star Review

This review is from: BREAK THROUGH THE BARRIERS OF REDUNDANCY TO GET BACK INTO WORK -AN A-Z ‘HOW TO’ GUIDE (Kindle Edition)
The author, Sandra Bellemy has really kept to her methodology with this release maintaining her “quirky” theme. The book is inspirational and offers tips not found anywhere else. If you’ve been made redundant and feeling of little worth or low esteem; or simply looking for reassurance. This book is for you!
I am really thrilled with this review. The buyer of this book contacted me via Facebook and told me more about his own redundancy story – Yes my surname is spelt Bellamy, but it doesn’t matter. I love this review. It’s lovely to be called inspirational.
I am still working on the printed edition of my book – The formatting is highly time consuming.
We filmed the final scenes of my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy Book Trailer and you can see in the background the brainstorming of ideas for my book. The second photo is when I just came out of the shower to prepare for a book trailer and YouTube video, and people on Facebook seemed to really like me with this ‘untidy’ natural look, so I thought I would publish it on here.
Stay quirky and write soon

The Little Girl in the Radiator (Mum, Alzheimer’s & Me) – Martin Selvin published by Monday Books


Hi everyone

This is a powerful book review read, written by one of my blogging students.

I haven’t read this book, but I can relate to this post, because I was not happy about the way my Grandma was treated in the nursing home, which she died in last year, on Friday 13th of June. There were a few staff who was nice to her, but when she died, the chair in her room was riddled with wee stains. When I went to visit her one day she was upset when I got there because they refused to take her to the toilet in the night. When I confronted a nurse about it, she said the residence go to the toilet before bed and one other time at 3am, she has a pad to pee into. It was disgusting and it makes me angry they treated her that way. There was a lot of stuff I was not happy about in that nursing home and I am so glad that she no longer has to put up with that.

What I don’t like, is society seems to think that memory loss (dementia) is a blanket term for anything that person (with dementia) says, is not true, because they don’t know their own mind. This is not actually always true. It can be an excuse for the nursing home to treat residents like, how can I put it politely, with no respect or dignity (worse than they would treat an animal) and use the un-‘fact’ that their mind isn’t working properly, as an excuse to fool the families who only like to think good about the home. I could ‘see’ what was really happening and some people dear to me, couldn’t or chose not to. I have never spoken to you about this before. I have kept it a secret and moved on with my life. I could not prove what was happening, the owner of this private nursing home, seemed not to care. I had meetings with two Managers and was under threat with being banned from the nursing home for, it would seem, interfering.

I could tell you more. I could tell you about the fact they kept residents in the lounge waiting to go to the toilet, and poor old (S) had to wait twenty minutes before they came back to take him. By that time he had pulled his trousers down to reveal his pants, he was that desperate to go. This was an occurrence I had seen before, including the pulling down of his trousers and a half an hour wait. An insider also confirmed that one nurse did shout at residents. Just as I suspected things were not as they seemed, they weren’t.

So, I have finally come out with what you weren’t expecting. This book review has sparked me off in this direction. It’s amazing what the power of the written word can do.

Keep writing and keep blogging, keep being you and trusting your gut instincts, despite what anyone else says.

My Grandma would want me to move on with my life and fulfil my goals, ambitions and dreams, not waste time trying to prove the nursing home did wrong. I had no solid proof anyhow. That is why more than ever I want to accomplish everything I set out to do in my life, so she will look down from the heavens and say ” that’s my Sandra and I love that kid.” I haven’t cried about my Grandma in ages, but now I am. I miss her and love her so much. It’s my birthday on Friday 24th of April and that was the last time I saw her before the night she died. My Grandma didn’t have that much dementia when she was with me – in terms of memory, she remembered and told me about a birthday card that she had written for me, prior to my birthday, and asked me did I get it. I said no it wasn’t my birthday yet, but thanked her so much. If she wasn’t in her ‘right mind’ she wouldn’t have remembered this. I have unconditional love for my Grandma and did then too – It’s this that eased her mind. I told her she had memory loss, she was 96 – So how much of her condition was dementia or simply loss of memory due her age, I guess we will never know. What I can say, is the doctor was called to the nursing home when I was there one night. The doctor said it was not dementia that was causing her such confusion, but the fact she was dehydrated from lack of fluids that the nursing home was responsible for giving her – Again – An outsider would not think about stuff like this. I have the ability to see things that others can’t. Sometimes I can see things for as they really are.

So next time you have a relative or friend in a care home and the care home staff are blaming the ‘dementia’ for what your friend or relative is telling you is bad about being in the nursing home, think twice…….ask yourself…..

Are they covering up?
Is your friend or relative confused because of a lack of care – not enough fluids, or food, or poor sanitation leading to water infections and not because of ‘dementia’.
Is their dementia really that bad, that they don’t know what they are saying at all?

My Grandma was not in the dementia ward and she didn’t have full blown dementia. Some doctors said her memory loss was partly to do with her age, at other times it was a water infection.

I know some people have full blown dementia, I get that, but what about the ones that ‘are not that bad’ to be in that ward. Is it being used as an excuse to not care enough to give proper care??? Something to think about.

If you have Liked this post, thank you. It would be great if you could show my student some blog loving by Liking her original post that I have reblogged, on her own blog. Thanks in advance for doing that.

Embrace Your Quirky and write soon
Sandra

Very accessible and readable. This book follows the experience of a son and primary carer from the point at which his mum is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
There is plenty of light in this account and I was banned from reading this in bed when I couldn’t stop myself from snorting with laughter over the mother and son visit to dog obedience classes. The experience of loss is very vividly illustrated and the most distressing part of the book concerns his mum’s experiences in the first care home.
It is of course one person’s perspective and one family’s experience but it has a huge amount to say about memory loss, cognitive difficulties and the response of medical and social services. I felt it had some really helpful ways of thinking about this type of progressive memory loss, in particular the consultant who likens the loss of…
