Extracts from this document...


Oh no, I'm going to be late for work, I can't believe nobody woke me up, I've worked at the post office for 30 years and have never been late once. (Pause) These people won't let me go, if they don't let me go, I'll get the sack. (Pause) They keep sitting me in front of a television, saying that this is my home, this is not my home, and it's a strange place, where everyone keeps trying to be nice to me. And I don't understand what they're saying to me. (Pause, starts crying) I really don't know what's happening to me, these strange people keep coming to see me, and calling me 'Grandma' or 'mom' and I keep forgetting everything, I cant remember having children, but I might have, my memory is not how it used to be. I'm frustrated and angry with myself, because I'm not sure who I am anymore. ...read more.


(Pause, someone starts calling her name) What do they want now, I'm not deaf, they keep shouting me, diner? I've already had my dinner, don't you argue with me young lady, I would know if I've eaten or not. Ok, ok don't get your knickers in a twist, I'm coming! Happy? (Pause) This women keeps painting my nails, I mean paint is for walls, not my nails. No it doesn't make me look pretty, I look ridiculous, and this woman keeps putting rollers in my hair, and no it doesn't make me look like a film star, I look like a white fluffy poodle. (Pause) This place is as bad as having my parents watching over me, not letting me smoke, I mean I've smoked for ages, and its never made me ill, all the people here who call themselves 'carers' more like 'uncaring' say that I'm very ill, but I'm not. I've never felt better, I mean who else can carry off a poodle style hair du! ...read more.


All they say is, Doreen, will you sit down. I'm not a baby you know. (Muttering goes along with carer) You don't care about me, what do you care whether I'm clean or not, your just here for the money. I need my freedom, you won't let me do anything myself. (Carries on complaining...) (Walking down a busy main road, just sits and stairs, wearing her dressing gown and pyjamas) Hundreds of cars, why are they all in such a big hurry, speeding like there's no tomorrow, its getting cold now, I'm sure the post office was round here, WHERE IS IT? WHERE AM I? Its getting cold now, I wish I had put that extra jumper on. I'm fine I'm not going back to that place. (She starts moaning and crying as the carer approaches her) (Pause, sits staring into space) It must be my age, I can never remember anything, I can't remember what I've just done, said or seen, what's happening to me I'm scared. (The empty shell of a woman sits and smiles, unable to identify anything anymore) Sarah Robinson creative writing coursework page1 ...read more.
