capt.hollister: or have a brain fart and miss my highway exit.
tinyarena: Nothing better than a good Alzheimer's joke. Am I right gang?
talkertopc: My 76 year old dad never remember that his memory has never been perfect so when he forgets something he worries about having Alzheimers.His memory is no worst than it has been all his life.
Donnchadha: tinyarena: Nothing better than a good Alzheimer's joke. Am I right gang?Exactly, because nobody would remember being offended!
Billy Liar: "Scouring more than 100 fats, or lipids, for what might set this group apart, they found that these 28 seniors had low levels of 10 particular lipids, compared with healthy seniors."Good news for me - I'm all kinds of fat.
Unobtanium: I would want to know. Mostly because it helped kill my mother. Knowing now (early 50's) would give me more time to prepare. Of course, I could prepare all I want to and wind up getting taken out by a bus.
Belias: All these posts are great. But also, senility is great if you like meeting new people!
lobotomy survivor: "My level of enthusiasm is very high."I am determined to say this at least twice this week.
rkiller1: Finally, I shall have the answer to my life-long question: will I be able to hide my own Easter eggs?
Ms_Behavin: I'm a nurse educator and in my research for an inservice on Alzheimer's, I came across the following video:http://youtu.be/feyydeMFWy4It's ridonkulously long, but very informative. The crux is the hypothesis that coconut oil can provide an alternative energy source for the brain after the liver converts the oil into ketones. Those of you who have family members affected by Alzheimer's might want to check it out.

UncleStumpy: My mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's a couple months after I graduated from high school. We had suspected it for a few months. In my mind, the hardest part was having her friends abandon her after the diagnosis. They wouldn't return calls, wouldn't visit. By the time she had her stroke 4 years later, I was the only one on a regular basis. It was so hard watching her go from my fun loving, goofy, mom, to the equivalent of a 5 year old little sister. It messed me up for a long time. There are some days I still have a hard time with it.On a positive note, I ended up working in health care, in our little hospital. Lots of Alzheimer's patients waiting to get into a nursing home. People always comment on how patient I am with those patients, but I can relate (sort of) to their struggles. I nver would have gone in to health care otherwise.Next week will be her 9th birthday in heaven./CSB
