Have you ever been in a Waffle House when it was not noisy. I bet your answer is the same as mine. NEVER! It is just the culture of Waffle House. Today me, Judy and Morgan went into the Waffle House and the noise was LOUD as I would have expected. I calmly talked with the waitress.
I shared with her that I had Lewy Body Dementia and that loud noises created chaos in my brain. Then I explained to her that it was as if a pinball machine was being played in my brain. Next I explained to her that it was as if the neuron in the brain had died that needed to pick u[ the signal to enable me to deal with what was happening......and that the pinging would continue until a live neuron could pick up the signal. Finally I told her that sometimes I will even scream when this happens.
Guess what? After my comments, the entire place got much quieter. I even began to think that I might be half-way to the morgue. (lol)
Never miss an opportunity to educate other about living with dementia and that it is more than just memory loss.
