62. My Journey By Chip Gerber
My website address is http// I canbe contacted through email at Chip Gerber
    Love Me (Right Click To Stop Midi) My journey began when I was born in Dover, Ohio, many years ago in 1945. Although it took me a long time to realize I was on a journey, I think I became aware back in 1997 when I was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease by Dr. Bartram in Canton, Ohio. I was a few years from retirement, although I tended not to think about it. I enjoyed what I did for a living. I had been a social workers for over 25 years, having also served as youth director and pastor in different churches. I was able to do what I had always wanted to do and trained to do, working with individuals and their needs.
    During my last employment I served as a court appointed guardian for those who had no one else to serve them....senior citizens who were neglected, abused and exploited. I soon discovered that senior abuse was a wide spread problem. I assessed the case and would serve my agency in court as a witness to what situation the senior was in, along with an attorney. I was known in my community and in the probate court system. Then there came a time when I began to question, to doubt my memory, which began to complicate my job of many years of service to the degree where I was no longer able to function as I always had in the past.
    Work was a strong ethic passed on to me by my father. I prided myself in caring and being able to master what had to be accomplished for the sake of those I served. I began slipping and it only seemed to get worse day by day. What was happening to me? What did I have? What was causing my memory loss and causing me to be unable to carry out my work assignments? My memory was terrible. I could no longer follow notes or even keep up with the paper work for each case. I began to panic, to have anxiety attacks, to lose control. I became clinically depressed. My journey and many of my goals seemed to take an abrupt turn and my life became a nightmare.

64. Alzheimers
information about alzheimers, causes, latest news updates on alzheimers andalzheimers discussion board.
ALZHEIMERS Over 4 million people suffer from Alzheimers. What causes this disorder is unknown. You dont feel Alzheimers. It just silently destroys your brain cells and steals your life little by little. People with alzheimers develop progressive loss of memory and lose the ability to take care of themselves. It attacks the brain and results in impaired memory, thinking and behavior. Over time alzheimers strips away all sense of self until there is only a shell. Certain studies have suggested that alzheimers may be related to an accumulation of aluminum in the brain. Although the link between alzheimers and aluminum remains unclear it is advisable to avoid cooking in aluminum utensils, do not wrap food in aluminum foil and avoid drinking from aluminum cans. Also boil your water. Large amounts of vitamin E may slow the onset of alzheimers. Dosages of 2,000 IU per day are recommended. Ginkgo Biloba Extract may also be of help. DRUG FOR ALZHEIMERS : In findings that could lead to a new Alzheimer's disease drug, researchers at San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the University of California, San Francisco, have isolated a protein fragment that nurtures brain cells. The effect could prevent loss of brain function caused by Alzheimer's. The frag- ment acts through the same mechanisms as its larger parent pro- tein. However, a drug based on the fragment would be small enough to pass from the bloodstream into the brain, said Dr. Frank Longo, UCSF professor, vice chair of neurology and SFVAMC chief of research.

1. Hur definieras demens?
Det finns flera definitioner på "demens" som i vissa avseenden skiljer sig från varandra. Begreppet blev därför föremål för ingående diskussioner och överväganden vid en konferens i USA 1987. Resultatet har publicerats i en intressant och klargörande rapport (NIH, Concensus Development Conference Statesment, volym 6, nr 11, 1987). Demens varar flera månader eller år och startar ofta smygande. Den kan utvecklas när som helst under livet, men debuterar oftast i hög ålder (seniet). Av praktiska skäl har man indelat demenssjukdomarna i två huvudgrupper, beroende på när de första symptomen kan påvisas. Vid start före 65 års ålder används beteckningen "presenil demens" och om debuten sker därefter talar man om "senil demens". Man anser att Alzheimers sjukdom och senil demens av Alzheimers typ är de vanligaste demensorsakerna i Sverige. I vårt land finns det troligen 35 - 40 000 personer som lider av Alzheimers sjukdom. Det näst vanligaste tillståndet är "multi-infarktdemens", som orsakas av upprepade infarkter i hjärnan. Det har då bildats många, avgränsade skador i hjärnbarken under det att mellanliggande delar är intakta. Alzheimers sjukdom skiljer sig från multi-infarkdemens bl. a. genom att skadan är diffust och oftast symmetriskt utbredd i hjärnbarken.

    Brain enzymes could be key to Alzheimer's treatment
    Some researchers say more needs to be done for people already suffering from the debilitating disease October 26, 1999 Web posted at: 4:55 a.m. EDT (0855 GMT) From Medical Correspondent Eileen O'Connor MIAMI (CNN) Scientists outlined on Monday some of the more promising treatments in the works for Alzheimer's Disease, a debilitating neurological condition that affects 5 million people in the United States. But after reporting a major discovery last week the location of a key enzyme in the brain linked to the mysterious condition researchers at the annual Society for Neuroscience convention in Miami cautioned that effective treatment could be years away. Scientists have known that disease takes place when protein plaques build up in the brain and attack nerve cells.

Perhaps this gift she so eloquently shared with me that evening, as no other lesson, has taught me what it may be like to have this disease. She died several months later - but her life, and her gift, will remain solidly implanted in my heart forever.
