Sorry to hear. Went through that with my mom. Hang in there.
Prayers. It’s a tough time.
Hate it for you Beeds07
Finally got to see my mom Saturday. Posted this on the covid thread, but fuck covid and fuck covid truthers. She's probably 20 pounds lighter since March, can't eat on her own, is barely audible and we couldn't really get her to look up or focus.
When the hospice nurse said 3-6 months I was originally upset but at this point I doubt it goes that long, and honestly that's OK. There's not much left other than a shell. I'm glad she's OK at her facility and maybe this was a bad day but other than seeing my dad passing from cancer this might be the hardest thing I've ever seen.
Is anyone concerned about getting Alzheimer's/Parkinson's/dementia? I have family history of it. Over the last few years, I feel my memory has gone to shit and it's become very difficult for me to keep my focus (I'm 37). In reality, it's probably due to the fact that I don't sleep well (usually about 5 hours/night) and am just overly sensitive to my family history. Regardless, since that study came out last year linking anticholinergics to dementia, I've cut out all anticholinergics (antihistamines like Benadryl and many sleep aids, like Trazadone, Sominex, and Advil PM) out.
Not me but extremely concerned about my wife. Her great grandmother died from it and her great aunt will soon. Her grandmother, mom & aunts starting to repeat stories a lot and having memory lapses
My dad has Parkinson’s and we have a history of dementia in the family. I’m 42 and definitely forget words mid sentence which concerns me. My wife doesn’t think it’s a big deal because she says I’ve always talked/communicated like that.
Definitely concerned. Dementia on multiple accounts on my mother’s side and multiple Alzheimer’s on my dads.
I’m just banking there’s some cures or strong treatment at least that comes available in the next 20 years
Quality sleep scrubs/flushes your brain of the plaque that contributes to Alzheimer’s.
I think about it a lot. My uncle has also been showing signs so this scares the shot out of me.
i dont have a family history of it really
but I do have a lot of CTE risk and from my experience alzheimers is by far the scariest way to go for me after experiencing the full breadth of ways to go
I MAY get to see my mom 2nd week of Sept. if no more workers show up with fevers.
I try not to worry about it, but my kids are terrified they will get it, it is all over their family trees...both sides
Elon Musk's Neuralink technology seem promising on the dementia front. Although I'm not sure what to think about becoming a quasi cyborg
I know. There's nothing I'd like more than to be able to get in bed and stay asleep for 8 hours. But my brain just will not shut down, and when I do fall asleep, it's usually only for a couple hours at a time. I've seen specialists and taken every medicine under the sun for it.
This fucking sucks.
My mom actually beat Covid at her facility where 20 people died. She was doing so well they graduated her out of hospice and I got to see her last weekend and her transformation is actually a medical marvel. She's falling now and fell for a second time today and they think she had a major stroke. Were getting hr back into hospice tomorrow.
Right now it doesn't look good, but we've done this five different times and she bounces back. Hopefully shes got a few more lives left.
Sorry to hear dude. I’m glad youre gotten to spend time with her recently
Its been the best thing to happen to me in the last year. When I saw her last there was literally nothing there, but when I saw her there was so much of my mom. The snide looks, the talking even if they weren't words and she seemed so much better.
It was really good. If shes up for it I'm gonna try and see her after I meet with hospice.
You’re a good son who has I am sure a wonderful mother.
I can't even wrap my head around how exciting it must be to experience a "rebound" like that.
Ran into my old boss and her mother who ran a company I used to work for. Found out the mother has Alzheimer’s. My heart just sank when she told me. They treated me like family and I am still pretty close to them but hadn’t seen them in a while because of Covid.
There’s just something about a person getting a fact wrong and telling you it’s this disease that kills a small piece of me every time.
