I just got a phone call from my grandmother hysterical saying she has altzeimers because she couldn't remember our address. I know most of you won't care, but I just had to vent.


Any of you have similar experiences? How fast did it take for it to progress with your family/friends?

Lots of old people forget stuff, it doesn't mean they have a full-blown syndrome or anything. Does she forget other stuff? Maybe look up what Altzeimers is and then you can see whether she really has it.

Wait... So she thinks she has alzheimer's because she can't remember your address? Are you sure she actually has it?

Yeah, she forgot where her doctor was when she was driving so she had to call a taxi and get him to drive her there. I don't know maybe she doesn't but she was hysterical and my mom was hysterical too. I didn't think this through at all...

EDIT: Wait no she forgot she went back to Columbia for college and she also forgot which college my Mom went to, and she also forgot what her article about antrhopology was about, which was like her life's work. She also repeats things over and over. For example, "Oh I have to show you this photo." Five minutes later, "Oh did I show you the photo?" Five minutes later, "Oh did I show you the photo?"

yeah, just cuz she can't remember you're address doesn't mean she has altszeimers. i don't know anyone's address except my own. i use an address book for that. a lot of old people just get forgetful.

edit: she can remember your phone number that's good enough evidence for me that she doesn't have it. if you are really concerned about her, have her see a doc

Huh. She should go see her doctor if she's worried because frankly the stress of not knowing what's the matter will be more harmful to her.

My grandma had it and, although it's quite an unfortunate illness, it's one of the funniest. I used to have long hair, and she died thinking my dad had two daughters... funny as ****.

My uncle has alzheimers(sp?), and my Mom is at very high risk for it. Condolences man, I know how you feel.
#25
At least she only has ALTzeimers. Once she gets CTRLzeimers and DELzeimers she'll start over completely and then be a baby. It sucks when you grandma turns into a baby. (Ask me how I know)

I seriously want to know, what's so funny about making jokes about terrible things? If you're trying to piss me off it's not working I really don't care about your jokes and if you're just making jokes to get other people to laugh well it's pretty immature.

You know actually it finally hit me, most of the time I just ignore the rude comments like these...but I just thought, why do I want to associate myself with these types of people you think that it's ok because it's just the internet, but what if you saw someone come out of the hospital crying because they have AIDS and then you saw a bunch of people run up to them and say "Haha you have AIDS" would you just ignore it?

I think this is my last post in the pit for a long time I'm gonna hang out at the other forums.

Yes, for at least the past couple of years. It's nothing compared to /b/, though.
