Hello, my name is Norrms and I have had a diagnosis of dementia for 10 years now. I have always insisted it is not a mental health condition as these conditions can be cured.

What are your thoughts please ??


Normally, I would never correct a posters spelling and/or grammar. Goodness knows I’m no expert in either area.

But in your case Charlia, I’ll make an exception.

If you’re going to hit multiple threads scoffing, criticizing and assuming conspiracy theories- you might as well learn how to spell it -

Its Dementia. D-e-m-e-n-t-i-a.

I'm sorry about your diagnosis. Dementia is a physical disease, brain cell damage. There are other illness or situations that can mimic the symptoms caused by dementia, such as alcohol or medication.

Norrms, I hope no one is telling you to "snap out of it" or "concentrate and you'll be fine". I would not handle that well at all.

Best wishes to you.
