My mom is at the stage where she knows something is wrong. She is depressed over being forgetful and knows it’s Alzheimer’s. I hate that she knows and yet maybe it’s good because that means the disease isn’t that advanced, right? She is severely depressed anyway. Hates being old and is so frustrated. My heart hurts for her...until she says something hateful...then, not so much. Haha. Ugh.
She scored a 16 on the MMSE. Have no idea at what point people get diagnosed....are they usually worse off on the scoring?
Just wondering how many of you have loved ones who still know what’s going on? I think my mom is fine and normal until the confusion sets in...and then she’s normal..
Is it always back and forth to where you really wonder if something is wrong?
