hi doctor phil, another question is that tonight when i was talking to some ladies at my mums care home(some fellow patients) i seemed to not follow the conversation with a new lady patient and i panicked myself. Although i think i just lost concentration and wasnt sure if the lady was talking about her son or her brother. I panicked again and my mind went to me having dementia again......
