Symptoms off and on but I know when it happens I usually stay by myself with dog. I look fairly young for 67yrs. old. I tell people I sometimes tell others I have memory problems because of traumatic brain injury. Very difficult with numbers, memory, paranoia ( until I figuredit out, it was me) organization skills shot. i have just been diagnosed with Lympocytic colitis and R.A. 8 yrs ago and have been pretty much ok....feeling struggle because of Dr. And my meds. Any suggestions?
Apparently your dementia is progressing very slowly. Hooray! But dementia does keep getting worse. It is remarkable you have been able to live alone all these years since diagnosis. While you still have the cognitive ability to make decisions for yourself it would be extremely good to make plans now for when you will need help. Do you have a social worker to help you make plans? Is your doctor making suggestions for you?
