Ronnies thoughts on dementia
SO am just getting off work this morning and I was thinking about one of my patients who has dementia. I thought about how scarey it must be for this patient to wake up in a hospital and not remember people or faces. But then I started to wonder if a person can actually be scared with dementia....I mean really...how long can they acutally remember what it is that scared them? Can they be scared on minute and completly forget that they were scared the next? Can they just forget what it is that scared them? Can they just forget to be scared? And so my mind turns with the deep thoughts of ronnie. I am nearly conclusional that dementia really isn't all that bad of a thing to have.
