This is actually rather sad. imagine you wake up one morning and you don't know who or where you are. You're scared and alone, everyone is a stranger. Someone comes up to you and calls you mom or dad and you have never seen them before.

It's even worse for the people who are forgotten. Imagine going to your mom's house, and her asking: "who are you?" or saying "get out of my house." It's a painful feeling.

My grandma was diagnosed with Alzheimer disease at the age of 58, i was only 11 years old, i spent a number of years living next door to her, she practically raised me until i was 12. Shes in a nursing home now, 66 years old, when i visit her she does talk, look at me, or say anything. She doesnt even know who i am, or anyone else is. It makes me wish i spent even more time with her, but i was too young to realize what i had.

yeah, most of them aren't scared, they just think it's 20 years ago, and they say stuff about "making breakfast for the kids" and all that. they can't go outside and do weird **** like walking around in the nude

and then there's the final stage of dementia, those people just sit there, they can't seem to remember anything, just waiting to die
