As for the issue of people’s thinking, “I’m forgetful and distracted and I can’t find the right word, so maybe I have Alzheimers”, my mom raised this very issue with her geriatric specialist. Then she asked him about ADHD (which she seems to have rather strongly, albeit undiagnosed formally).

He said that, nowadays, doctors are just starting to discover that, in many cases, it’s not Alzheimers, but ADHD (often undiagnosed) that’s rearing its ugly head and acting up again. It seems to do this during years of great change & development in a person’s life. Periods like childhood, puberty, peri-menopause, menopause, and seniorhood. Between these periods of development, it seems to lie low.

Interesting, isn’t it?
