she is wrong

Image result for george hw bush

first let me say
that sexual harassment is unacceptable behavior
that should not be tolerated in normal society
at least 50% of you that are reading this
have probably been the victim of it

that said

thats what i told my wife she as i watched her on tv
i think she really doesnt understand
on the news i dont hear anyone really explaining why
this may be happening
finally on one news show there he was
a neuroscientist explaining what can happen

these are the major dementias
in the order of their prevalence
many of the folks with dementia really have a mixed type
of some of these
the most common mixed dementia is
alzheimers disease and vascular dementia

first is alzheimer disease
second is vascular dementia
lewy body dementia thats robin williams disease
parkinsons dementia
frontotemporal dementia

the two i wouldnt want to have for my familys sake are
lewy body dementia and frontotemporal dementia

i call them the fast and furious dementias
the behavior can be very inappropriate
it can be extremely stressful on the family

with parkinsons dementia
usually the disease starts with the movement stuff
think michael j fox and george hw bush
after a period of time the parkinsons dementia can kick in
it moves like the lewy body dementia
with some inappropriate behaviors
plus there is the side effect of all the drugs

just ask any nurse who works in a memory center
about those behaviors
they are not acceptable to the rest of us in society

now enter expresident george hw bush
he has had parkinsons for years the results of
small strokes
he probably is in the later dementia stage now
it will not get better
it will only worsen
the death like alzheimers disease or lewy body dementia
can be an awful terrible gut wrenching end to ones life
devastating to the family

so i say
she whoever that person is is wrong about george hw bush
is he really responsible for his actions
maybe his family is responsible
exposing others to what he really has no cognitive control
here is a well done news report on usa today about all this

i think she should apologize to the bush family for
her lack of understanding
i can only imagine how they feel

one of my biggest fears
as i progress down that alzheimers disease journey
near the end of it
i fear that i will change
as the disease takes over the brain
takes over that personality part of the brain
takes over the front part of the brain
making people like me say and do things that we would
never ever do

i right now while i am able to i want to apology to anyone i offend
when that happens
please dont report it in the news
for my familys sake
i will like george hw wont know the difference
but they will
things will be bad enough for the family
without making it worse for them

i personally hope that i die before i reach that point

so back to expresident george hw bush
im sure that if he was his brain normal self
that this would never ever happen

we as a society and her as a person
if you dont understand this all
we have gone too far with all this
