Hun although your Mom had it I would strongly suggest having a neurological test done
To self DX is not the answer My mom will be gone one yr next mth and my step dad has it BUT I know I do alot of forgetting and I am always misplacing things the norm ....anyways I too was afraid like you n thought this was gonna be my life's end
I had worked as a geriatric nurse owned my own home til other diseases and illnesses made me have to sell and retire ....
I guess what I am trying to say is not to self dx please please I implore you to go and get tested professionally a family doc can set you on the right course
Keep away from checking the net I have had myself convinced I had everything from tumor to God knows what ......
I am not treating your concerns lightly at all but I honestly believe that the proper way to have this DX is thru a doc and go from there
I am sure glad you found us here and hope you will stick around
I am from Canada and have no idea how the monies or gov agencies work except for here but I honestly believe there is a definite difference in forgetfulness and getting older ( I am 53) and this Disease
Hope to see you post again
Take care hun and God Bless
There are resources on the side in yellow as well .......
Be well and please seek medical attention asap
