I don’t know what to do

Postby cherlouise66 » Tue Jul 21, 2020 6:06 pm

Hiiii
New here, a friend recommended this site to me.

Like my title said - I don’t know what to do...

I’m very worried that I might have the start of Alzheimer’s Disease. The reason I think this - couple of days ago I found my self in my kitchen and watched myself step into a large black rubbish bag. As I pulled it up my legs I think oof I need to make holes for my legs to go through - so I stepped out of the rubbish bag and went to make holes for my legs.

It was then that I ‘woke’ up and put the rubbish bag away.

There are times my speech I’d slurred and my sister struggles to understand me.

My father had Alzheimer’s Disease and I’m very concerned that I too may now have the beginnings of it.

So like I said - I don’t know what to do

Hello,
This must be very scary.. the best thing I would do is contact your doctor and make an appointment to see him/her.. and then take it from there.

best wishes x

Anything like this must be very frightening and it will help you to know what has caused it. Many people experience strange things and worry that it might be dementia, only to find that they have an underlying physical condition that can be treated, which was causing the experience. beca121 is right, first stop GP.
