If you have been diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment, you’d like to think that people who are aware of your condition would offer you a little bit of comfort or compassion.
Well, good luck with that. If anything, you’re likely to find the opposite. There seems to be no end to the hurtful, thoughtless, dismissive remarks that people make about mild cognitive impairment, and that’s my topic today.
Have you been the subject of unkind or condescending comments about your MCI? How do you handle such remarks? Let me know by commenting below, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
