Has anyone else experienced this and can you tell me what you think please? My mum was diagnosed with AZ earlier this year although her symptoms have been going on for over three years. Although she has seen consultants and had scans by the time the hospital appointment came which saw her being diagnosed it was already so far along that she literally forgets almost all things that happen in the short term. We tend to not mention her having AZ around her as she gets very cross and says "I havent got flaming Alzheimers, its just my age", the problem there is she is only 65 and the doctors have said this is premature. (I think that is why they took so long to diagnose). I only bring this up because of that BBC documentary last year "my life on a post-it note" about a woman similar in age to my mum who was living with AZ. She seemed to be quite "aware" that what was happening to her was due to AZ. Sometimes I wish my mum would understand this so it would stop her getting so frustrated and angry with herself when she gets confused. She says a lot "Why am I so stupid?". Anyone advice most appreciated.
