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......
Oh this isn't dementiaIt is probably just a mistake in communication

I think it was more my lack on concentration but sometimes i have that with tv when following, like over trying to keep up , anxiety and stuff maybe as before but i still worry about dementia
