Having dealt with two sudden deaths in the family and facing up to my increased risk of stroke with AT, I have realised the importance of making a Will. That made me think about how much of my possessions will mean little without their 'back story', and that a stroke , whilst not finishing me off, could leave me unable to pass on that story. I'm not going to write my life story, but I am going to photograph some things that mean a lot to me and add some details about them. I'll put this with my will, and if a stroke does rob me of speech or memory skills, there will be something to fall back on. The exercise may also help with the decluttering that needs doing when you realise how much 'stuff' you have accumulated and there is no more space.
