I now live in Pahrump, NV since the end of June, but what a schock this email was to me.  


I use to stand up to do something and wonder what it was I wanted to do. Now I stand up and forget where the hell I am and look for somewhere to hide and generally fall asleep and wake to figure it out couple hours later.  It is really difficult for me to keep things straightmy brain is sideways now.  I keep reading other posts and many from people who think they know how to handle us and folks they do not have the first fricken idea of that they speak.  By the way I read that certain shampoos now cause Alzheimer's, dementia, etc.  So I guess, do not wash your hair except with bar soap, until they discoover that causes Dementia. I try to bring you the facts, not the truth which is subjective and changes as our brains change, but facts are facts they do not change and they are what is not what we want things to be.  No Cure for Alzheimer's, no affective treatment, no truly known cause, all guesses and bull shit, FACT everyone that has gotton, will get or has Alszheimer's will DIE from it, PERIOD. People tell me yes but in the meantime you can have a great life, RIGHT, great fun forgetting who you are, other people are, what you are doing, how to use your fork, when to go to the bathroom, what day is it, etc.,  great life bull shit.

Hi friends! It is the right time to take awareness about this Alzheimer’s Disease because 3.7 million Indians suffer from Alzheimer's according to a 2016 report and the figure is likely to double by 2030. It is a neurological disorder in which death of some brain cells causes memory loss. So be aware of this. Recently I read one blog on social media about the symptoms, causes and few facts about Alzheimer’s Disease - Alzheimer's Disease - Symptoms, Causes and Facts

I also read one more blog about one traditional Indian diet that prevent Alzheimer’s Disease - The Link Between Alzheimer's And Indian Diet

Follow these tips and avoid Alzheimer’s Disease and give long life to your brain. If you have any doubts on Alzheimer’s Disease consult a neurologist and follow their suggestions too.
