Hi, my mother has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and I take turns with my family in looking after her, but I've recently become more worried about my own memory. I've had a very stressful time having lost my 29 year old son in a car accident 9 months ago and my dad died a few months ago, although I was still numb from my sons death then. I took early retirement from work (as a nurse) 3 years ago, I'm 57 now. I wasn't coping with the stress of the job and had worked full time for over 30 years. I went back to work just as relief on the bank, and found working occasional days actually helped me, it even helped with the grief after losing my son because it's a sociable job where you have to talk to lots of people and it helped. What worries me now is that if I go the doctor about my memory (I work with my own GP!) if I am diagnosed it means I won't be considered able to work. So I daren't go and see the doctor.
