I fear getting alzheimer’s disease or dementia when I get older the most. Followed closely by cancer.
But I think the deterioration of the mind is scarier than even cancer.
Both of my grandparents on my dad’s side had alzheimer’s but, fortunately, neither on my mom’s side did.
My grandfather died in Levy dopa dementia. Scary!
But from what I know, it’s not genetic! Or am I wrong?
Probably dementia. Cooties is up there, too.
My Mom slowly withered away mentally.
She died from advanced dementia in 2019.
God bless her.
Whatever disease you die slow and painfully from.
I really don’t worry tbh. I just take one day at a time and enjoy it.
Dementia, stroke, aneurysm, lung cancer, cancer, throat cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and heart attack.
Aw, shucks, I’m in too good a mood to even think about it.
I think I already have it.
I’m scared I’ll get cancer tbh
I’m scared of alzhiemers.
It just sounds like psychosis kind of.
But like non stop full blown psychosis
I remember a person telling me how their grandma was wailing all the time and lost their appetite
It sounds truly awful.
But fortunately there is things one can do to reduce their risk of it.
Cancer - My cousin at 48 copped it, as did my 2 uncles and grand mother.
It runs in my family i guess.
Your body can’t move. You can’t talk, you can’t smile. To the outside world, you’re a vegetable. But you’re still in there. You’re in there and fully aware of everything that’s going on around you.
And unless someone trains a computer to respond to your eye movements, you have no way to communicate.
No one will ever know your mind is intact
All of them. I’d rather die young in some accident or assault, than die of disease.
A hemiplegic stroke. Or cancer.
Why worry about hypotheticals? Life is full of pain, doesn’t mean you need to anticipate all of it. It always seems worse than it really is.
There are so many diseases that I wouldn’t want.
I have had a real fear of developing Tardive Dyskinesia ever since being put on antipsychotics. So far so good, the APs I’ve been on long term have a lower incidence of the condition.
My grandad had Parkinson’s disease
Not sure if that’s genetic but it wasn’t pleasant to watch
