If you have a loved one with dementia, make sure you have advanced directives in place: DNR, no artificial respiration, no feeding tube, no kidney dialysis. Doing any of that stuff is just prolonging the agony. The body feels pain long after the brain has all dissolved into goo--the brainstem is the last to go.

My wife of 34 years was diagnosed 4 years ago with early onset at age 53. Sometimes you have to laugh at stuff to keep from crying.

patchvonbraun: Fuggin Bizzy: "of of"

I think subby has Alzheimer's teh LOLZ j/k.

TFH might be funny if my dad hadn't left us years ago. Oh, he's still alive, just...off on his own plane somewhere thanks to his accelerating dementia.

/*sob*

Lost my mother to Alzheimers.  She was only 65 when she died, and had the disease for about 10 years prior to that.  There's nothing even remotely funny about it.  Really.

My father was sliding into dementia of a different sort (vascular, we figure) for about a year before he had a massive
anterior brain bleed that killed him.

/don't find dementia jokes funny.  Too personally painful.


I hear you and my deepest sympathies to you, my friend.  That said,  I channel my inner Mel Brooks who says the way to deal with the Holocaust is to make fun of the Nazis; therefore, I make fun of Alzheimers.

God bless America: where every layman looks at the problems that have plagued society for a century, and assumes they can solve them within 10 minutes on the google.

DrPainMD: Personally, I can't wait to get Alzheimer's. No more work, no more responsibilities. Just sitting on the porch, drooling on myself and waiting to be entertained by my next fart.


The part I'm looking forward to is the fresh confusion and terror every time some strangers come to visit me, claiming to be my family.

Mom calls it "old timers". And everyone shops at "the walmarks".
