I was telling Zac the other day that I think I am loosing my mind and that I may have early onset Alzheimer's Disease. I went home and looked it up in my self diagnosis book that my insurance company sent me last year.
Symptom One: Persons with AD forget names and numbers.
A couple months ago this way cute guy asked me for my number. I gave him what I honestly thought was my number. Turns out the number I gave him was my old work number in Logan.
Symptom Two: The person often forgets simple words or substitutes unusual words. (e.g. calling the toothbrush "that thing for my mouth)
I was in the car one night trying to tell Steven a story... "We were at that place. You know the one. The place where we go to class. The place were I have to wear a dress. You bring your scriptures." "Do you mean church?" "Yeah that's right church! So we were at that place.")
Symptom Three: Persons with AD can get lost in familiar places.
At least three or four times in College I would drive home to a house I hadn't lived in for years. Get out of my car and walk up to the front door.
Symptom Four: Persons with AD may dress inappropriately for the weather or show poor judgment about money.
I feel as though this one needs no explanation
Symptom Five: Persons with AD will misplace things. This is more than forgetting where keys are placed. The person with AD may place things in inappropriate locations such as a watch in the sugar bowl.
Remember when I put groceries away and put toilet paper in the fridge and cantaloupe in the bath tub?
Symptom Six: Persons with AD will rely on others to make decisions.
Who has ever tried to get me to decide what to order at a restaurant?
Symptom seven: Persons with AD will neglect to do normal activities such as bathing and dressing themselves.
Well I have been assured by my roommate that I am still good there.
Don't anybody think I am a hypochondriac or anything. I am not going to admit myself just yet. I am just saying.
