Senile dementia makes life better!

My mother in law has lost her mind, and is enjoying life much more. Something to look forward to in your old age.

She does not recognize me anymore, or remember that her husband and brother are dead. She has returned to memories as a girl. We went out to dinner and my wife got dresed nicely and mom said to her, Are you going on a date? Too funny!

She is happier and enjoying her food, fun and tv. Sort of like being drunk and your frontal lobes are not functioning. No worries! Except she was from the depression and hides food as she is afraid she will not have enough to eat! Not a real problem of course.

If you have ever gotten to know a Down's syndrome child they also have a sunny disposition because not troubled by lots of things that worry adults.

So maybe losing memories is not so bad! I will have to remember to look forward to that! She was troubled when she knew she was losing her mind, but now that her mind has lost so much, she does not mind!

Kind of like that movie 50 first dates! Rough on those who can recall but not her problem.
