Memory

Everyone forgets a face, a name, an address, or a number at some time in his or her life. Many forget more often than others. This is a normal thing that usually takes place because of distractions due to lack of sleep, overwork, over stimulation and is only a temporary loss.

The brain is very sensitive to a number of factors, however any type of chemical imbalance, usually caused by stress, disease, medicines, or changes in daily habits can throw the thought and memory processes into a frenzy. Most problems with memory are temporary and as soon as the agitating factor is removed it returns to normal.

Parkinson's however has taken a devastating toll on my brain, memory and thought processes. The medications required to control the symptoms of this disease along with the area of my brain that is being affected have totally changed my life.

I went to a neurologist for seven years prior to being diagnosed with Parkinson's. I have had problems since my teens. My Father had Parkinson's so this disease was not new to me. I had symptoms similar to him, but not the severity that he had. Daddy's mind was good to the end but there were loopholes in his memory.

He took Sinemet and medications for high blood pressure in the beginning and later was placed on antidepressants. Sinemet was the same medication the neurologist used to determine in fact I actually Parkinson's.

I was in my forty's before actually being diagnosed. When? I don't remember. Memory and thought processing problems caused the loss of my job along with the physical problems of stiffness and frequent falls. I was an RN. I had finally achieved my goal only to be able to continue working for four years. Sinemet had done wonders to keep me going for three years.

Little did I know that medications were building up in my system as it was insidious and I did not recognize it? Nurses do not listen or take advice well, much like doctors. Changing the chemistry in my brain, I started getting easily agitated, super paranoid, increasingly forgetful, and became insensitive to the needs of others around me. I became a totally different person. I even started resenting my husband for the control he was trying to take in my life. Someone needed to, bless his heart. I was out of control and when I tried to run away from home to find peace and quiet. I wound up in the hospital for five weeks, where I remained until they could readjust my medication. The reality of that stay remains a mystery.

A few weeks ago I had an episode where the caregiver came in from outside and although she had been around all morning my brain shut off. I did not recognize her and could not understand why this stranger didn't knock at the door before entering. On went the switch and I felt so stupid and embarrassed. For a few seconds I did not know where she was. I think it is time to talk with the neurologist again about my medicines. That was totally scary.

How to cope? I am keeping very busy with writing, trying to learn PSP, genealogy, anything to stay busy. I connect with other people, in different sites who share the same interests. I keep stimulating my brain cells in everyway possible.

Listen to others who say your personality is changing. If they say that doesn't sound like you listen. Tell your neurologist. For me treatment has been by trial and error. Not every med is for everyone, nor is everyone affected in the same part of the brain. Chemistry is the most important and the hardest element to balance.

On a personal note I wish to thank my husband for staying by my side. I wish to thank PLWP for being the best thing that has happened to this Parkinson's patient and the best support group going on the net.

PattiPresto, for someone claiming lapses in memory, you sure remember the dirt you throw around when you're slinging mud.
