What Is Dementia?

Dementia is not a specific disease. It is a descriptive term for a collection of symptoms that can be caused by a number of disorders that affect the brain. People with dementia have significantly impaired intellectual functioning that interferes with normal activities and relationships. They also lose their ability to solve problems and maintain emotional control, and they may experience personality changes and behavioral problems such as agitation, delusions, and hallucinations. While memory loss is a common symptom of dementia, memory loss by itself does not mean that a person has dementia. Doctors diagnose dementia only if two or more brain functions - such as memory, language skills, perception, or cognitive skills including reasoning and judgment - are significantly impaired without loss of consciousness.

There are many disorders that can cause dementia. Some, such as AD, lead to a progressive loss of mental functions. But other types of dementia can be halted or reversed with appropriate treatment.

With AD and many other types of dementia, disease processes cause many nerve cells to stop functioning, lose connections with other neurons, and die. In contrast, normal aging does not result in the loss of large numbers of neurons in the brain.



Now my question is:
• What is the main reason for healthy people began to suffer from a sudden senile dementia?

I'd say an individuals level of stress is a major contributing factor, but that's a given.

Life can throw some real bad things at people and I guess it can become too much... there's only so much a person can take before the body and mind are affected negatively.

I have been doing some research about dementia behaviors.

1. Recent memory loss that effects job skills
2. Difficulty performing familiar tasks
3. Problems with language
4. Disorientation of time and place
5. Poor or diminished judgment
6. Problems with abstract thinking
7. Misplacing items
8.Changes in mood or behavior
9. Personality Changes
10. Loss of initiative

•1. I have seen quite often in these last times.
•2. I have not seen, however not to say that does not happen.
•3. I often see, even in the mirror.
•4. I have not noticed.
•5. Occurs very frequently.
•6. And what the is the abstract?
•7. Also happens with some frequency.
•8. Recurrent procedure.
•9. Hard to say but not mean it does not happen.
•10. What else can we see.

This leads me to the next question, when a forum suffer from these symptoms that mean is having symptoms of dementia?

The brain is a complex organ which gets better at what it does most, and gets worse at what it does least.
So if you have embraced your current lifestyle you might as well embrace its consequences.
Fail hard, and proudly. It's your birthright.

Seeing as how the primary diagnosis would come from a Psychologist before being referred up for treatment, no, ITT: Amateur Psychologist's is more accurate.

This is dementia symptom?

A World of Warcraft player has posted the following ad on Craigslist: "I got my WoW account banned yesterday during the archaeology bot ban wave. I wasn't a gold farmer or seller, never bought gold. I just botted archaeology because it's a boring profession.

I'm looking for a WoW Account Admin to unban my account for $1000 USD. No questions asked - your anonymity will be preserved. This is a serious offer. I live locally and can meet you in person wherever you like with cash, PayPal you money as a gift (non-refundable and non-disputable by me), leave an envelope under a tree, or pay you in any other manner you prefer. You will definitely get your money if I get my account back. You will have my full information - name, address, everything. Email me and I will give you my phone number and we can talk."
