    😡 HI i haven’t posted but only once i am i guess in denial. I have really bad days and really good days with my memeory. Today is a good day and it just shows me how bad a bad day is. I get very nervous driving make a lot of wrong turns it is so frustration, I hate to take a shower it is overwhelming and I love to drive and used to shower sometimes twice a day. I told 3 of my closet freinds what i thought of them after listening to the same problems for years and now i don’t have them. My husband says he is so worried about me that he wants to change some of our big plans. I am sick of all this. I finally got an apppointment at the memory clinic but not until 4/9/09 and i want to go so my hubby stops worrying and i can prove there is no huge problem.

    OH well just venting sorry so long thank you for being there.

    Hey Terry….I have a few web pages for you to check out.Some will help you being so angry and confused.We all have those feeling but they are negative harmful feeling that we must overcome with the good. laughter and love.My biggest concern is the driving issues. You admit to missing turns and getting lost geesh what are you waiting for to miss when you should have applied the brake and have a crash?You say you have a thinking disorder that is getting worse. Are you thinking that you will know when it is no longer safe for you to drive? Please stop before you kill someones grand children. Please read Driving Alzheimer’s. Keeping in mind Brain Tip number 10. Surf the Web . Finally, searching the Internet may be good for the brain. Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, found that surfing the Web triggers key centers in the brain involved in decision-making and complex reasoning and was better for the brain than reading a book. So whether you turn to the Web to e-mail friends, read up on the latest Alzheimer’s disease research, or join the discussion groups at ALZinfo.org, keep coming back for a brain-healthy 2009.
