Carenpolar, I can understand your fear. I have a calendar for appointments and a "To Do List." Watching the Glen Campbell Documentary and "Still Alice" was informative but also scary. My doctor gave me the screening and the last question was name a brand of pencil. I said a Detroit Tigers pencil I bought for the Grandkids.
I passed 100%.
One thing he said was my brain is cluttered with so much information that it may take time to remember things. He didn't seem concerned. Actually I think my husband forgets more things than I do. The again, aging, lack of sleep, dehydration, and Xanax might be the problem? I so fear getting AL. My Aunt got it at 79 years old.
It's hard to gage what is "normal" and what are warning signs. Good luck at your appointment. Exactly what will the doctor(s) do?
