I work in the city of London, am very career focussed and work long hours. I love working, it's what gets me out of bed each day. My dad developed early onset Alzheimer's disease when he was 46. I am just about to have my 36th birthday and I sense I too have now started my journey into full blown dementia. It's utterly terrifying. I have episodic memory loss that seems to have worsened over the past few months. I don't know if it's stress that's making it so acute, all I know is this hideous disease runs in my family and right now I cannot explain my loss of memory. I feel so less sharp than before, like I have a layer of fog over my brain. Ironically I work for a company is who is a big supporter of Alzheimer's society, and this proximity to the society has really heightened my awareness of my situation. I'm not a hypochondriac, I am just realistic. Is there are anyone out there who knows what I am going through? I'm literally terrified.
