Not everyone with memory problems has Alzheimer's.
I've found out there's also something ... also non-curable at this time ... called binswangers disease which attacks the white matter in the brain.
I really wish there was a word other than dementia describing these types of problems. It always seems to me that dementia is yelling and causing a disturbance but I guess there are stages when that happens.
I wish we could just go from being regular people with some odd problems without having things happen that are hurtful to our families.
