Hi Donnalynn -
You have already made a positive step in scheduling an appointment with a neurologist. To keep your mind at ease, it might be best to continue to read literature and educate yourself. Mayo Clinic has a lot of education information available online: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/alzheimers-disease/DS00161/tab=InDepth. Or if you have yet to request an appointment and are interested in traveling to a Mayo Clinic campus for an evaluation, click on the "Request an Appointment" button at the top of the page. Thanks

you may just be stressed. take out the photo albums and go through them. perhaps have a family member over for tea and look at the pics with them. this starts a lot of common conversation and it just may free up your mind to relax with the familiar memories
