Crazy Or Just Nuts?

As most of you have probably already figured out, I'm a very uninhibited kinda girl. (REALLY? you say) My mom has Alzheimer's, her dad had it, etc. So the cards are kind of stacked against me in that department. Monday, I was told I would need a surgery that, Oh My God, increases your chances of getting Dementia!!! Like I needed any help in THAT area! So here I sit, hiding from a crazy Lebanese, dealing with a bi-polar husband, a mother with AD, 9 cats, 1 big dog, too much laundry, a messy house, and thinking, "Do I really want to go nuts any sooner than I'm already going to?" But never fear, I justed popped the top on a Red Bull, lit a smoke, and now I'm contemplating. Tell me peeps...would ya do it? Would you try to find a compromise? Will ya return me to the address sewn in the back of my clothes if I show up lost at your door? As you can see, I always try to find the comical in every situation because, face it, life's too short to worry about everything. But I really would like your opinion. Think about it seriously, would you put yourself through something that might speed up something you're probably going to end up with anyway?

It would all depend on what the surgery is for. If the surgery is for something serious then living with dememtia "might" be better then dieing. Can't really answer without knowing the nature of the current problem, and even then it's your life and a value judgement. (though a topic that is none of my business doesn't generally prohibit me from offering an opinion)

Hey buddha, your comments are always welcome or I wouldn't have asked! You're right, I have alot of questions about how necessary the surgery actually is. It's to have my ovaries removed. I don't care if anyone knows what it's for, just didn't want to scare the squeamish! I think it will all depend on whether they think they are cancerous or benign. That will definitely be the deciding factor. As you said, sometimes dementia is the lesser of the two evils. Thanks so much for commenting!

Does it really matter. I think we are all crazy anyway. Disease or no disease. Craziness is just a part of humanity.

Thanks jeeps! Nice to know I'm not alone in this craziness! BTW, got your birthday request but didn't know how to answer it (how to do it on the blog, not HOW to do it!)Bring it on Birthday Boy!

I have to agree with mike ... which would be worse, "dementia more likely" - tho not certain - versus the consequences of not having the surgery.

Instead of the Red Bull, next time you might wanna reach for the Calgon ... lol

(hmmm .. wonder if Calgon still exists)

akron42 replies on 8/16/2006 4:21 pm:
WOW! Someone else who isn't afraid to show their age! Calgon take me away! Good idea, but the BETTER idea is to drink the Red Bull IN the tubful of Calgon! Glad you stopped to comment!

My mother is suffering from dememtia from being on drugs while on a ventilator. It is two years later and things keep getting worse. I would talk to the doctor and find out the pros and cons with has been hell since those drugs they used. Hugs and healing {=}

Thanks Mofun! I know what you mean, my mom seems to be progressing so much faster this past year. She was confused last night about where she was and fell, breaking her shoulder. So now we have that on top of the regular problems! Hugs to you too, you know what it's like!

Not a chance in hell - well, unless it was hell of an orgasm, but other than that hell no!

Until later

I wouldn't want to increase the risk of it, but what if you don't have the surgery is your health at a larger risk???? You have alot to sort out there, and its not going to be easy for you. As far as returning you home. And if I was reading your address sewn on the back of your clothes, would we be in a hurry to go anywhere????? LOL
hoping for the best for ya D & S

akron42 replies on 8/16/2006 4:33 pm:
No hurry at all! Did I mention it was sewn on the INSIDE of my clothes? They must be removed to get the full address. Maybe dementia wouldn't be so bad! I could get "lost" alot!

Is that an offer? know, maybe a good orgasm is the answer to the problem! I like to think it's the answer to MOST problems!

It just depends on the options. What will happen if you DON'T have the operation? It may be worth the gamble. And what the hell, if you have dementia, you won't know it anyway. And no, we won't send ya back. Joe

It would depend on the reward...

And yes, I would make sure you got home to the address sewn on the label... no fears.

Yeah, I'm trying to weigh the risk vs. rewards. Glad to see you would get me home! I could be wandering around for days!

I really cant add much more than the others (except for the weird, rude pet post) that has not already been said. In the end, what you do is always up to you. I'm not sure what I'd do. I have been on the wrong side of inner darkness, and I can tell you that it is a very tough thing. And what I dealt with is a far cry from Alzheimer's. Either way, I hope everything works out.


akron42 replies on 8/17/2006 7:08 am:
I know. I've been giving it alot of thought and may have come up with a solution, but have to talk to the doc first. I told him I needed to think about it, so I go back the 30th. You've only lightly touched on what you went through in past blogs/comments. I can only imagine, and hope my imagination is worse than the problems you went through. Glad you're here C.

start doing those sudoku puzzles immediately and have the surgery if its necessary ...

That advice was prolly worth what you paid for it

Gawwwd, you really have to dig in and ask a lot of questions before having elective surgery like that ....

I have seen dementia ... (George Will wrote an excellent column on it about 2 months back) .. tough call ....

akron42 replies on 8/17/2006 7:12 am:
That's actually good advice. Everything I've read says that the more you work your mind, the less likely you are to get dementia, or at least hold it off. You sound like someone who knows firsthand about dementia and if that's so, hang in there. It's so hard having things turn around and YOU become the parent and them the child. I'm really glad you stopped to comment!

What kind of surgery are we talking here? I wish you well with it all. Now that address in your label, it that the one that says it comes from NYLON?

akron42 replies on 8/17/2006 7:14 am:
LOL! I can see it now..."How do you get to Nylon? I've got some crazy chick that thinks she lives there!" The surgery is to remove my ovaries. I'm going to see if they can just take out the bad one and leave the other. If they can, it's a no brainer. If not, it gets complicated. It's good to hear from you, I've noticed you around the blogs lately. Hope you stick around!

One thing to consider is that dementia for you is most likely some 30 yrs down the road. With the rate of medical advances especially given the high profile that dementia has now due to it becoming more common with increased longevity a cure may be in place by then. If your talking about removing your ovaries there are a shitload of complcations that can cause to your system I would get as much info on them as possible too.....

akron42 replies on 8/17/2006 7:16 am:
I know! The more I read about it, the less sure I am that it's the right thing to do. I hadn't really thought about medical advances. You're right, things could be different in 30 years. Thanks for a new point of view!

The change in your chemical balance could be significant, but more change than dementia typically. The risk of not doing it could be very substantial so I would definitely consider the test results carefully. Who knows, the chemical change could even offset your genetic predisposition. It's a tuff call. I hope it all works out well for you in the end.

akron42 replies on 8/20/2006 10:38 am:
Thanks bud! You make a very good point. My father's family lived into their 90's and their minds are sharp as a tack til the day they die, so maybe I'll get HIS genes! Doc called Friday and says the ovary HAS to come out, wouldn't go into detail on the phone, and moved up my appt. A little scary that he insists on moving so fast, but I'll take it day to day. You've made me feel so much better with your comments and I really appreciate you!

That's a tough one.. I think you answered your own question. Life is too short, why make it any shorter. I'm sorry that you have to go through all this, I wish you well in whichever you choose. Btw, I would not return you to the address sewn on the back of your clothes, I'd keep you to myself! lol

akron42 replies on 8/20/2006 10:41 am:
Hey! I LIKE that answer! I'm having the surgery after all, the doc is pretty adamant about it. But I'll let him know that even if I seem out of it, it's okay to let me go home cause I have places to wander off to!

Hey akron, let's try to look at the postive side of this problem, as one lady told me, they take out the crib, but leave the playpen, plus you are young enough that someone will find a pill or two to treat the other before you get old enough to get it. Strides are being made everyday in medicine, so not to worry, just keep ole hubby on his meds, so he is not hard to deal with.

akron42 replies on 8/20/2006 10:45 am:
Thanks tut, I think that's exactly what I'll do! You're right about medicine, new stuff everyday. I'm a "take my chances" kinda girl, so I guess this won't be any different. If I start blogging really messed up stuff, you guys will know what happened!

Hi Hun,

You have such a great spirit! I can't tell you one way or the other. What sort of operation you are having is a mystery. Weigh the choices and I hope it all goes well for you.
Have a good weekend, I never knew your husband is bi polar. You really have your hands full. God bless!!!

akron42 replies on 8/20/2006 10:47 am:
Thanks Flo! Yeah, I do have alot on my plate, but you know how it is. You deal with what comes along and keep going. I'm so glad to have friends like you and to be able to come here and blog. Sometimes it is an absolute lifeline for me. Give the "baby" a big hug for me, and one for you too!
