All I can say is that this disease SUC*#! I lost my dad on 5/8/14. Memorial Service coming up on 5/17/14. I'm sorry to all of you who are having to deal with this dreaded disease.
 
By the way, I'm a newbie.
 
God Bless,
Mike

 Hello Mike,

 I'm very sorry to hear of the loss of your DF. I wholly agree w/ you re this disease.

 Your DF is at peace now, pls take care of you at this very emotionally draining time.

 Welcome to HW, just wish it was for another reason.

 My prayers are w/ you and your family.

 God bless.  Alice.

I sometimes feel very scared with this disease. Because, sometimes I forget about something. I'm afraid it is a symptom of Alzheimer's. However, I hope that's not it.

 Hello Xdarata, and welcome to HW.
 
 This disease is very frightening, but from what you wrote, you haven't been dx w/ Alzheimer's. Is that right?
 
 I think most of us forget things on a very regular basis. It can be due to stress or such. It happens the older we get, too.
 
 I have what is lovingly called, 'Fibro Fog'. There are times I can't remember how to add a group of numbers or how to spell a simple word I know, etc. I was a teacher for many yrs., so you can imagine how unnerving that was in a classroom.
 
 If you have concerns about your memory, I would suggest you discuss this w/ your dr. S/he may send you to a neurologist or such to have testing done.
 
 My DM had the testing done yrs ago. She did have this DD. At this point in time, I do not.
 
 Your dr may be able to give you some peace of mind. Pls let us know how you're doing?
 
 God bless.  Alice.
