My mom passed on July 3 and I am still grieving and feeling her loss. The last 2 years being her caregiver, kept me very busy. Now with all the time on my hands, if I forget something I wonder if it is alzheimers. I will be 57 this month. Sometimes I can't think of a name, and I go nuts. How do you know what is normal, and what is the start of something? Is there anything you can do, anyway? I have been on anti depressants for almost 30 years, and I wonder if that can effect you. It does change your brain chemistry. The ssri I am on kind of makes me feel like my thinking and concentration are slowed. Can anyone relate to this issue? Now that I finally don't have my mom to caregive, I hope that I have healthy years left!
