Are you retarded? Literally the same picture is posted ~2 hours before and only 8 comments from. No matter if you've in "Top Rated" or "Newest comment" it would be like centimeters to scroll to see it.

Are you stupid or retarded?

My neighbor (who was also the closest thing I had to a grandfather, and since he had no grandkids of his own, I was essentially his grandson) suffered from severe dementia and Alzheimer's late in life. At first I thought he was joking when he said he didn't recognize me after I returned home from college one summer, it didn't take much time to figure out that his memory was fading fast. The worst by far was when the cops showed up at 4 in the morning because there was an intruder sleeping in his bed. This was of course his wife of 50+ years.

I've seen it before and I'm seeing it again with his wife and my uncle, at the moment. It's by far the worst way to watch somebody go, but there are those rare moments of clarity when you can see the person they are and that is how you'll remember them when they go. It's amazing how easy it is to separate the disease from the person. Of course, you don't forget the disease, but when I think about my neighbor, I remember squeezing oranges in July and listening to him reminisce of his time stationed in post-War Japan.

He was a great man, and the Alzheimer's covered that up, but every now and then you could see a glimmer of that greatness. You remember the disease as a singular, albeit terrible, event, but you remember each of those glimmers distinctly.

My grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer's when I was two, so I never got to know him. My grandma has always favored my other cousins, but everyone has always told me that I would have been his favorite, which makes it even harder. He passed about seven years ago when I was fourteen. The last few years were really bad, he was basically reduced to an infant. The last time I heard him speak, he walked up to me, put his hand on the side of my face, looked me in the eye, and said "sweetheart".
The feels this gave me are almost unbearable.
