Failure of the brain

Neurologists say Dementia should be called "failure of the brain," because the other names are nebulous and do not show the severity of the disease to most people.

As the patient's brain slowly dies, they change physically, lose the ability to speak, and the caregivers are often in shock, and exhausted!! Patients will end up bedridden, unable to move, and unable to eat or drink. But it is the different phases beforehand that are just as painful.

The day they suddenly forget how to dress themselves, and become confused or combative when you try to fix the clothing they've put on backwards.

When they repeatedly ask where their life-long mate is or where their children are while looking straight at them. When they are confused, angry, or frightened, it is because they are still partially aware of who they were, yet are that person no longer...

-----------------------------------------

My thoughts go out to people who are suffering or have suffered when loved ones have been struck!!!

Re: Failure of the brain

My ex had something called 'Semantic dementia'. He did not deteriorate physically but his brain gradually went.
It started with him not being able to remember things or the use of things eg if you gave him a hamburger he would ask what it was and it would have to be explained to him, he was keen on woodwork in his retirement but lost the ability to use the tools.
He began to forget people and he would overfill a kettle and became unsafe to live unsupervised. He'd get up in the middle of the night to shower and go out to get a paper.
Until about a year before his death he would do Sudoku but empty his finished cup and plate onto the floor and open a drawer to pee in.
His behaviour to his beloved dog became aggressive.
He unfortunately had to be put in a home in the end as his poor wife just couldn't cope.
