It’s not that she forgot, it’s a symptom of dementia called “anognosia” where the sufferer denies they have anything wrong. It’s also common with multiple mental health conditions such as eating disorders and even personality disorders.

Pretty shitty Dr. not informing the family. This goes beyond patient privacy to patient health and safety. Not to mention her license if she had one would have to be revoked. My mother had Alzheimer’s so I know how they handled it in Canada anyways.

That’s not how dementia diagnosis works though. They don’t just tell you and you leave at least not in my experience. When my Mother was diagnosed with Dementia my Mother’s doctor called a family meeting so us kids were all informed. There is a lot of work that happens after a dementia diagnosis. In my mother’s case it was submitted to court and we had to enact a legal guardian and conservator for her reminding assets, etc. My Mom was diagnosed in 2014 and just recently in 2019 have we finally buttoned everything up.

Same thing happened with my grandpa. He had a whole slew of problems along with dementia that he conveniently forgot. He hated the doctors office and tried to avoid it as much as possible.

Dementia is a horrible disease. I’ve told everyone around me that when I get old/if I get dementia just let me go, don’t try to keep me alive longer with pills and meds. You are truly just a hollow shell of who you were.

My great grandpa was never diagnosed but I assume that’s what he had. Whenever I would come to visit he wouldn’t recognize me, but keep telling me stories about my life that he heard from other members of the family.

Wow. For that person to find this funny is painful. One of the worst days of my life was going to see my grandma after she had been diagnosed and she didn’t remember me. And then she didn’t understand why I was crying. And she didn’t pass away for another few years and I just had to go along like I was a stranger even though I had all of these amazing memories with her. She’s been gone almost 10 years and I still get choked up about it.

Not saying this is completely bullshit but I find it unlikely. If dementia has progressed to the point where the patient would forget the diagnosis, then their loved ones would know they have dementia anyway. Before even short term memory gets affected things like depth perception and other sensory things start to deteriorate and you’d know there was a problem before the doctors could say anything.

The biggest sign that my dad was developing dementia was when he totaled his car turning left in front of a car that he thought was much farther away than it really was. His driving had already become very erratic and it was clear he had judgment issues while driving. He was diagnosed shortly afterward and two years later he is only just now beginning to have memory problems. Every case is unique though, so I can’t draw conclusions about dementia in general, but I can say with confidence that even if you don’t live with your relative with dementia, you would know something is wrong, because dementia is always so much more than just memory problems.

If I were Grandma and read this I would be ashamed of my grandchild.

But then I’d forget about it in 8 secs so it’s all good.

Laugh through the pain, man. My grandfather was diagnosed with dementia and I had to move in with him to help him. He cannot be left alone. It’s mostly sad, devastating, and depressing, but caretakers do get little moments of hilarity through the fog.

​

An example that I like sharing: My grandfather forgot I moved in with him for a couple months while we were still transitioning. One day he asked me, “Montana, did you travel all the way down here with your boyfriend?” I had to tell him I don’t have a boyfriend. His response? “Maybe that’s best.” Sad as hell, but damn hilarious. Thanks, Pawpaw.

I worked as a caretaker of people with dementia and one thing I can tell you is that forgetting things is in almost all cases just one of many other symptoms of the disease. The family would notice, and the doctor should always contact the family when it’s dementia. I call bullshit on this tweet.

Ah, dementia.

The day it finally comes my way, assuming by some miracle I live that long, I’m selling my shit and setting up some suicidal stunt to go out with a bang instead of the slow burn of brainrot my grandparents did.

I don’t know why everyone is getting. All butt hurt about this. If you don’t find it funny then fine. People cope and process difficult situation differently. Humor is one of those ways.

It’s not cool to criticize someone for how they choose to mourn or deal with tragedy. Dementia is tragic and horrible and hard… that doesn’t mean there aren’t funny or ironic moments.

Scary but she probably did remember and was just embarrassed. My neighbor is in a similar boat. Scary because she drives, with one hand to because she had a stroke, and is now losing her mind. Signs are there but no one is around enough to see it, SO is a long distance trucker.
