diseases of the mind must be worse than of the body
when you have moments of lucidity and realise you're not who you thought you were; that must be terrifying.

the thought of having something like alzheimers terrifies me
not to mention what it would do to my family. Ugh.

since my step-dad's on his last legs, I asked my mum what she'd prefer if she got infirm
"do what you promised and hold a pillow over my face" was her stern and serious reply.

WhenI was a kid, and my nan ever pissed off my mum
She'd say "If I ever get like that, shoot me." Just sayin'

I only found out recently that my great-grandmother died when I was 10
I never met her or even knew of her existence, because she was locked up in a home for the terminally loopy.

I'm really glad we decided to discuss this
It's not depressing at all

the old bat used to go to estate agents pretending to be a millionairess
just to snoop around other people's homes.

Mind you, imagine spending the rest of your days with elderly John Virgo and Jim Davidson

i dunno, john virgo could do trick shots with his walking stick.
and jim davidson would probably get abused by his carers.

it'd be a right laugh

Why hasn't someone slipped in something about going for your nan's pink
but ending up sinking the brown and bouncing off the cushion?

Are we losing our touch?

And another 3 have it.

The idea that I might someday wake up and find that I'm not really me
isn't totally unappealing.
