Diagnosed with dementia. One of my close friends has been diagnosed as well. The saddest part is, he knows, and it is devastating to him. Cries a lot and I don't blame him.

It is a terrifying way to go. Both of my parents died of dementia, as did my mom's mom. My sister, who just turned 70, was given a diagnosis of dementia, but that has since been questioned. Nonetheless, it is almost certainly in my future, should I survive long enough.

Not sure there that there is a "good" way to exit this earth, but I certainly would prefer it be sudden rather than staring down death over time as you mind gradually goes dark.

That is sad on all accounts

Wife's Mad. Told me we never talk anymore. And just last nite while watching super bowl told her 2 or 3 times to get me a coke and popcorn. Also told her not to forget to take out trash in the morning. Ain't that something. Also told me I was too indecisive. Can't figure out what to do about that. One nice thing I guess. She called me a pro crastinator. Don't know what a crastinator is but I guess I'm a good one for her to call me a pro. Gonna wait til tomorrow to look that up though. I love her but somrtimes can't help but thinking I should have told uncle Junior to keep his coon hound pup and stevens double barrel and also his youngest daughter.

My friend is a retired Army full bird Colonel. He served in Vietnam and was shot down in a helicopter by small arms fire. His Sargent Major was in the seat next to him, and one of the bullets blew the Sargent's brains out and all over the Colonel. He has a really bad case of PTSD that requires an emotional support dog. Other than that, a really dynamic, take charge type person. I love him like a brother.

Norm et al the "old white man" (add black or any other color also) who u see on the st down at the breakfast place or at the mall are the last of the true war hero's who made this country great.

The same guys who the left say are a disgrace to the country..

My aunt and uncle both died with alzheimers, I would not wish that on anyone. Sorry to hear about your friend Norm.
