I'm 65 and I'm starting to not be able to remember names of things. I guess I'm not too advanced dementially, if I am still cognizant of my decline.
I often wondered what the long term effect would be, of suffering pretty severe symptoms of depression such as insomnia, anxiety, intrusive thoughts, etc.
Now I am reading that RNT, or repetitive negative thoughts can make you a candidate for dementia. Maybe this is what was meant when they said
"old soldiers don't die, they just fade away"?
