Dementia/Alz Now on the Back Burner

Hi Guys!

Listen, yesterday I went to see my soctor with SAGE test in hand. One of the things I wanted to do was talk to hom about memory concerns and why I have them. My first concern was genetic, as dad had Alzheimer's( at 75-76) and mom had dementia at 92-93. So that was my concern. What I've read is that even though possibility might be there, probability isn't always. I guess it's another way of saying "science isn't necessarily exact". So, though the possibility is there, it isn't there now, so I have time. And I have to tell you, being obsessed with not knowing one way or the other takes a lot of energy. And I get dizzy if I stand up too fast (we won't go there haha). So I will stay a member here if that's ok,but I will keep this in the back of my mind, instead of the draining forefront. You guys have a great day. 😀Just Me

  1. Hi ! Thanks for the update! I am so glad that the visit with your doctor has helped put your mind at ease a bit! You are right, worrying about things that we have little control over takes a whole lot of energy. We most definitely welcome you to remain a member of our community! All the best, Patty (Team Member)

    1. And thanks for the response. While I don't necessarily think anything will happen "today", I know there might be changes later, but that's later. Have a great day 😀
