Punctuation malfunction in my brain and my increasing fear of commas.

Before I forget...

      I will definitely have a look at the website and publish some of the videos as they are relevant to what we do and work on. In Namibia, Alzheimer’s Disease is still a big stigma and people are afraid to talk – maybe with your online groups, people will come to the front and talk about what they experience… And hopefully we can assist and help where necessary.
