For the DUMMY OP:

Janet Jackson is a legend and an icon. Pop stars, male and female, still reference her as an inspiration, mimick her style and dance moves and remake her songs. As for her record deals, she LEFT Virgin once the landmark $80 million record deal she signed in the '90s was complete. Also, she ASKED to be let out of her Def Jam contract, but not before giving them a #1 album. So, you see, no one fired her, nitwit. And you're right--she's always had a round bubble butt, and she was known for having one when Kim Kardashian was still just a kid running around in her mommy and daddy's backyard with a pacifier, and J-Lo was just a young, unknown Puerto Rican chica in the Bronx.


Any questions?

WW alerts webmaster that a post should be considered for the wit and wisdom column on the left side of the page. FF (flames and freaks) alerts the webmaster to the fact that someone is posting homophobic or racist rants.

Lion's mane mushroom is one substance that was studied internationally and can not only halt, but reverse dementia/Alzheimers. There's a regerative growth hormone in lion's mane. I'm reading about other dietary changes too from Natasha Campbell McBride that change what's going on in the brain.

I too have these symptoms and scarily, am not even 40 yet! But with research and adjustment, there is hope.

I have two friends, 75 and 82, who have no memory problems except for one area. They can't remember names of actors and actresses when they're trying tell me about a movie or TV show. Does this type of memory loss have a special name?

What's the cost of the test to find out if dementia's in your future?

by Anonymousreply 2104/25/2013

They didn't include "Thinking people are stealing from you."

My dad suffered from dementia for 15 years. He suffered. His family suffered. It is not something I would want any family to suffer through.

What disease does R23 have that he's predicting an R71?

There was a study about marijuana helping Alzheimer's a while back.

Neither my 60 year old friend nor my 62 year old brother can remember much of anything.

Both have extreme short term memory loss.

I talked to my brother on the phone for 15 or 20 minutes straight about the ins and outs of his new four teeth.

Several weeks later, he said to me "I got new teeth". He didn't remember a thing about the extensive previous conversation.

My 60 year old friend does that all the time.

I told my friend that we might as well not talk at all since he cannot remember anything. It does render most talking with him useless.

What was the question???

I talk with my sister-in-law on the phone very often. We are both .. drifting a little. She doesn't tell me when I'm repeating something, but when I realize I'm doing it I don't tell her either. So I win.

by Anonymousreply 3104/28/2013

r29 - That's not necessarily Alzheimer's. Anyway, just suck it up and have the same conversation. Who cares? Presumably you love your brother and your friend and that's why you speak to them.

Also, telling you the same thing several weeks later is NOT extreme short term memory loss. That's not even particularly remarkable. Any run of the mill bore does that. Extreme short term memory loss would be if he repeated the same thought every few sentences in the same conversation.

About ten years ago I developed a condition where I could remember the last six months and anytime after 2 years, but not that crucial six month to two year old timeframe. It was weird, and it moved. Three months later I could remember three months I had previously forgotten, but three more were lost.

Anyway it went away eventually, but I wonder if I hit my head or ate something poisonous or something that cause my brain to have to rewire.

Funny you mentioned that, R22. That was my first clue about my mother's descent into vascular dementia & Alzheimer's, going on five years now. It was so bizarre.

And oh, so sad.

My uncle used to escape in the evening to find his "real" wife...not the woman that he had been married to for 65 years...

We always got him, staring in total bewilderment at the soccer field which was created on the site of his home...90 years ago...

My former neighbors wife started to suffer from dementia when she was 80 and he was 92. It was so sad. The first sign, like r22 said, was she began to believe people were stealing from her. He said to me that they had spent 60 wonderful years together but the happy, funny woman he married was disappearing and steadily bring replaced with someone who was angry and moody. It was clear that just before I moved he was learning to say goodbye to her because although she hadn't died, the woman he adored was no longer around. I felt awful for him, he was 92 then but in perfect health and I think he always thought he would go before her, so it was devastating to think he would spend the last years of life watching the love of life fade away.
