I Don't Know Who I Am or What I Am

The other day, I happened upon the 10 Signs of Alzheimer's disease. After I read them, I was somewhat disturbed to find that I qualify for half of them:
  1. Challenges in planning or solving problems- I am daily confounded by the question, "Should I shower, nap, or eat?"
  2. Difficulty completing familiar tasks at home, at work or at leisure- Washing the dishes, cooking, and general housework are lately neglected or left unfinished.
  3. Confusion with time or place- I no longer know what day it is.
  4. Withdrawl from work or social activities- I've only been out of the house 3 times in the last 2 1/2 weeks.
  5. Changes in mood and personality- Just ask my husband.

  1. That IS hilarious. I think I must have an early-onset too!
