Hello... My Grandad is in the later stages of dementia and has unfortunately had a very quick decline. I, myself am 20 years old and also suffer from memory loss, long term and short term. It's not something which I have had diagnosed to a huge extent, however, I was tested for dyslexia earlier this year and my memory was a huge part of my conformation for the disability. Throughout this past year also, I was training in Musical Theatre at a performing arts school in London, of course, part of my training was to learn routines, songs and script at a quick pace. It was very evident early on that my capability for this was very small, often completely forgetting routines when others managed to remember the whole section. It's not only my training that I noticed this memory issue, day to day, I struggle to learn and remember peoples names, constantly forget where I have left things and will often forget certain words and then have to think of a usually, less literate word. Only being twenty years of age, I sometimes laugh off that it could be possible that I could have such a disease at this stage of my life, however, could this be early warning signs of what is to come? Recently, I watched a film, one of which some of you may have heard of, 'Still Alice'. It got me really thinking about Alzheimer's and the effect of which it could have on my life in the future. I'm determined to help others fighting this battle and to ensure that I don't have to endure it at a later point of my life.
