      I have had a grandpa with alzheimers that has passed a while ago and currently have another grandpa with it and a grandma in the early stages of it. I have also watched my great grandfather die in his bed due to cancer. Personally, i would choose the cancer 10 times out of 10. Alzheimers is brutal.

      I feel your pain , my mother had it was a real hard ride for over 8 years, from not knowing where she was at to a memory unit at over 8 grand a month, not that was as near a problem than not knowing who you were when you went to visit, she would just cry when we went there it was more a heartache to visit her than not, that is the true tragedy than really anything else, an increadbly smart woman reduced to less than an infant was more than scary. I would wish less than that on my worst adversary, much less on anybody in general

      I have an affliction where I can’t not be a smartass about everything. It’s why I’m not on social media. That and the site mods banning me and the women attempting to collect child support.

      key to finding the 6 is looking for the loop of the 6 going in the other direction.

      Hi! Please share any reference that supports the validity of this test.

      In the following analysis the French Professor Bruno Dubois Director of the Institute of Memory and Alzheimer's Disease (IMMA) at La Pitié-Salpêtrière - Paris Hospitals / addresses the subject in a rather reassuring way:

      "For some time now, I have been stuck and I do not know what we were I talking about ... before, I was afraid it was the beginning of Alzheimer's ... but today, after reading this article, I am reassured."

      "If anyone is aware of his memory problems, he does not have Alzheimer's."

      1. I forget the names of families ...
      2. I do not remember where I put some things ...

      It often happens in people 60 years and older that they complain that they lack memory. "The information is always in the brain, it is the "processor" that is lacking. "

      This is "Anosognosia" or temporary forgetfulness.

      Half of people 60 and older have some symptoms that are due to age rather than disease. The most common cases are:
      - forgetting the name of a person,
      - going to a room in the house and not remembering why we were going there ...
      - a blank memory for a movie title or actor, an actress,
      - a waste of time searching where we left our glasses or keys ...

      After 60 years most people have such a difficulty, which indicates that it is not a disease but rather a characteristic due to the passage of years ...

      Many people are concerned about these oversights hence the importance of the following statement:

      "Those who are conscious of being forgetful have no serious problem of memory. Those who suffer from a memory illness or Alzheimer's, are not aware of what is happening."

      Professor Bruno Dubois, Director of IMMA, reassures the majority of people concerned about their oversights:

      "The more we complain about memory loss, the less likely we are to suffer from memory sickness.

      Now for a little neurological test:

      Only use your eyes!

      1- Find the C in the table below!


      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      2- If you have already found the C,

      Then find the 6 in the table below.

      99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
      99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
      99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
      69999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
      99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
      99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999

      3- Now find the N in the table below.
      Attention, it's a little more difficult!

      MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNMM
      MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
      MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
      MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
      MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

      If you pass these three tests without problem:
      - you can cancel your annual visit to the neurologist.
      - your brain is in perfect shape!
      - you are far from having any relationship with Alzheimer's.

      So, share this with your over-60 friends, it can reassure them



      It is quite an easy test. I hope it has a scientific basis.

      My Great Great Grandfather. Great Grandfather, and my grandfather ( brothers) all have (had) Alzheimer which i most likely will have myself. There are some great promises in genetics with the use of Cannabis in the slowing or reversal of Alzheimer in mice.

      My grandma went through this. It was a slow decline for about ten years. The last few she was mostly bed-ridden, couldn’t communicate at all much less remember anyone or anything. The laundry list of issues and struggles is too long to list.

      A crazy thing then happened. One day, she “snapped out of it” and was sitting up in a chair, smiling, communicating, genuinely being joyful, and gave my grandpa this hope that she had been misdiagnosed. It was as if that whole slow decline had been magically erased; at least the majority of it. She was all of a sudden doing things she hadn’t done quite literally in a decade. Three days later she died of a stroke.

      Have any of you who have watched someone go through the slow decline of this condition witnessed anything like this at the end? I will call it a “moment of clarity” right before death. It was amazing. The older I get the more I view it as a blessing to have our last memories of her be of a smiling happy person rather than the struggling, almost empty body and mind we had watched deteriorate up to that point. It was really odd and amazing to say the least.

      The scientific term for this is “terminal lucidity”. It is something I wouldn’t have believed possible if I hadn’t witnessed it myself and it is apparently associated with the end stage of some cases of psychological and neurological Diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

      According to Wikipedia, the actual phenomenon wasn’t given a name until 2009 but has been recognized for ages. It can even happen in conditions where it is thought that the brain has sustained permanent damage and destruction. It doesn’t happen all the time but isn’t a rare occurrence by any stretch. Common thread is that this return to normal happens right before death (days or sometimes just a few hours), and sometimes after years or decades of decline. Very strange indeed and like I said, if I hadn’t witnessed it firsthand I would be skeptical.

      I've had 2 grand parents on both side of our family die of this disease. I can't even explain how had it is to watch someone you've known your whole life fall away. I will say I would rather have it myself rather than my children get it. Just give me a bottle of whiskey & a cold moutain top to fall asleep on; if it ever comes my way.

      the notebook. one of my wife's favorite shows.

      on another note, the mind is an amazing thing. i had some crazy experiences during a very trying time in my life that i've never quite been able to explain and never been able to replicate.
