'For many, Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia is a mystery condition affecting old people. Christine Bryden was 46 when she was diagnosed with dementia, and ‘Who will I be when I die?’ is the beginning of the story of her emotional, physical and spiritual journey since then. Christine is living positively with dementia, and provides a unique insight into how it feels to be gradually losing the ability to undertake tasks most of us take for granted. Her story is remarkable because of the vigour with which she is undertaking this battle in her life and her deep sense that her life continues to have purpose and meaning. Christine’s approach to health and well-being has made this book a must for many people with dementia and their families.'
