Mild memory loss not part of normal aging

From a report at the link below:

"The very early mild cognitive changes once thought to be normal aging are really the first signs of progressive dementia, in particular Alzheimer's disease." said Robert S.Wilson, PhD, neuropsychologist at Rush University Medical Center. "The pathology in the brain related to Alzheimer's and other dementias has a much greater impact on memory function in old age than we previously recognized."

This means I'm in trouble because I've had mild memory loss for several years.

I have often told Valeta that I believe in the hereafter. I walk into the next room and then wonder what I am here after.
