It was a relief to be able to easily complete the puzzle. While I don't suspect that I have alzheimer's, I'm going in for an MRI tomorrow because I'm concerned about memory problems. I'm 63 and like most of my peers, have more and more short term memory problems. My friends and I all laugh about not being able to remember a word, and then 3 minutes later, it pops right up. But mine seems to be worse than most folks I know. Recently I have almost caused three wrecks. I have lupus and fibro, and know that brain fog is a common symptom. Years ago (maybe 10 or 12) I was diagnosed with small vessel disease, but was not told how little or how much, so we're going to find out tomorrow. It would be so nice to know what is going on. Of course, my hope is that the MRI finds only normal changes due to aging, and that all this is just brain fog. One of the recent posts here is about the frustration a woman is going through while caring for an older family member, and my greatest fear is in becoming that old person no one wants to be around anymore.
