I've Seen Too Much

When I was younger I worked in the dementia ward for a nursing home for 4 months (I left because of the stress) and my partner currently works at a nursing home. I have seen so much of the affects of dementia and hear so much from my partner the very idea that I could suffer from that one day scares me. I don’t want to grow old because there is so much about being youthful I love but mainly I don’t want to run the risk of having dementia.

Cheer up. If you live long enough to get dimentia that should be considred as a blessing! Also death is just apart of life, think of the millions, no billions of people who have died before us. Take what you can get and do your very best with it. That is all you can do, no use in getting upset about it, you're always aging.
