We know that dementia is a real disease. But the people dealing with it, are so different from our own. They are so much more like us. They are our neighbors, friends, coworkers, and even our family. We are all just a part of the fabric of our lives. Our job is to not let their disease take over our lives. We should give our best and hope that they are all going to get better.
Our role is to try to help them and make them feel as normal and normal as we can. The hardest part is not knowing whether all the care workers are doing their jobs. We see the need for them all over the world to care for our loved ones, but then it becomes a challenge to try and be objective in judging their behaviors.
The BBC has made a big deal about the fact that the people they are caring for on the NHS are suffering from dementia. In reality, I think they are mostly just doing their job. I’ve dealt with a lot of people who have dementia and I think they are pretty competent people, but I think they may only be dealing with a particular problem that they are not yet able to address.
I once had a very elderly man who died. The only thing I could think of to say to him was, “dont worry about it. everything will be okay.” I thought I was just being overly dramatic. It turned out, he was suffering from dementia. It doesn’t matter how old you are or who you are. The point is that it’s not your fault that you suffered from dementia.
I think I’ve had that experience, and my mom, who is now 92, suffered from Alzheimer’s at age 40. Although, she was a very nice lady and just a delightful person, she was not diagnosed until she was in her late 80s. I think it is a really unfortunate situation, but it could be a lot worse.
Although, I think Alzheimers is more a symptom of a slower-than-normal metabolism, than being the cause. I think it is also more of a “if it’s not too far gone,” than a disease. After all, when you’re 90 and you’ve had Alzheimers, you’re just as likely to have the disease as if you were a 50-year-old man.
When Alzheimers was a problem, it was also a warning. But that is the point of this trailer. Alzheimers is a disease, and if you are diagnosed with Alzheimers you don’t have that warning. As in, “we’re not talking about Alzheimers, but we’re talking about Alzheimers.
Alzheimers is a disease that can strike any part of the body at any time, and can cause loss of speech, confusion, impaired judgement, and hallucinations. Alzheimers is a disease that can strike anyone at any time, so even if your Alzheimers isnt as bad as the previous trailer, you still have to worry about dementia. As long as that dementia isnt terminal, your brain will be fine.
When I was a young kid, I used to write a lot of blog posts about Alzheimers, and I found out that when a kid starts having a brain problem, it’s not necessarily the baby’s brain, but rather the brain that is in the baby’s brain… so I wrote a lot of stuff about Alzheimers…
There’s this great quote from the song “Stare In Hell” by the band Coldplay: “There is no such thing as dementia.” Which kind of makes me feel better about Alzheimers, but then I remember that in the same song the singer refers to the time he was diagnosed with the disease as “the time after dementia.” So I guess it makes me feel better about Alzheimers.
