You're a gem & a mensch for spending so much time on this madscntst! Yes -- I do have some; I just started doing that about a month ago so I'll try it. Soon. Just got back from trying to clothes shop with my dementia mom -- exhausted! (But triumphant! Found a few nice things.)
That's so nice you can shop with your mom. My dementia Mom won't leave her apartment. When I try to buy her something new she says she likes it but continues to wear the old, faded shirt and pants she wore the day before, and the day before... Sigh.
Good luck with photo posting! I do okay with photos because I store most of them on my computer. My iPad doesn't have a lot of storage available so I can't use it for keeping files. Also I do a lot of photo editing in my work and I'm not familiar enough with iPad to know if there's a photo editor on it. For things like avatars, you have to be able to crop and shrink to some extent.
I tell people I simply don't have a computer but most people can't imagine that. So we'll see how I do with my avatar. "Shopping with dementia mom" may sound nicer than it is. We can message each other now & again about this so we take it out of deppography. But -- suffice it to say -- I live in my mother's house. We all inherited a big stubborn gene. About 1/8 of daily conversation is gibberish -- very mad hatter & Lewis Carroll. Hides all her favorite things constantly: especially hearing aids but everything else as well. Sister helped with shopping; we always say we need about five sisters for this particular person. Thank god for deppography & ice cream.
Hey folks, I've added a few avatars to our Deppography Proboards. If you would like to use any of them, just go to the "Profile" link near the top/middle of the Deppography forum,
Click on "Edit Profile".
Then under "Choose how your avatar will display, see the option "Use a Forum Avatar - Pick One" and click the "Pick One" link.
There will be a dozen or so options to choose.
I hope to add a few more when I get time, but this is quick-and-dirty. If you would like a specific photo to be your avatar, and don't have a working Photobucket or photo sharing account, if you can describe to me what you want, I can try to add it to our avatar selection. I don't know how many we can put in there but at least so far, we seem to have space for it
