Day to day
While it is true that Alzheimer's and related diseases are progressive and never get better what I experience seems to be the norm for these diseases from the constant interaction I have with other diagnosed people. And that is there are good days and bad days. It is not that any day is even close to pre-diagnosis but it's just that some days the symptoms are worse than others. There are many things that can have an affect on this. Not enough sleep, even the slightest virus, stress, too much external stimulation to name a few.
Some days I feel sharp (even though reality is I am not even close to a few years ago) and other days I feel kind of fuzzy. I think there are probably a number of variables at play here. I think my variation of the disease makes me a little different than most I interact with however I have met a couple of people that seem to be very close in their experience and symptoms. I personally believe that my variation is going undiagnosed VERY often until memory becomes more of an issue.
Speaking of memory, I have definitely had some disturbing signs of short term memory involvement in the last year to year and a half. It still isn't anything like what the common course of Alzheimer's would experience but when you have dealt with all frontal lobe related issues it can seem extremely scary to start to have memory issues enter the picture.
Well that's it for today, I always forget that I have an app on my phone for Weebly, the web host, which makes it simple to write a blog post on my phone, this is a first for that and hopefully may get me to write more often.
