What do I do if I suspect alzheimer's in myself?
I'm 57 and getting a little forgetful. What should I do?
I read somewhere that all the information from the year 0 to 2000 is what we receive each week!
My figures may not be exact, but that's because there is so much information to remember. And if I wrote it down, where would I find it when I needed it?
What should we do if we suspect Alzheimer's in ourselves due to a little forgetfulness?
First, realize this is the nature of our information-overloaded world, today. There is so much information out there, we're bound to experience stress and overwhelm. As a result, we're likely to forget more.
Second, if you're really concerned, discuss it with your doctor. It could be due to any number of things--medication, stress, information overload, or not keeping a good calendar. Without my smart phone beeping to remind me and my online calendar, I'd definitely forget. I'd be lost!
