I’ve Got Alzheimer’s

by duncanr

I got a Facebook friend request from youngest grandson yesterday. When I looked at his profile I was astonished to find he was married

Several things went through my mind

B*stard !

Didn’t invite me to his f*cken wedding and now the gobshite wants to be my friend ?

F*cken nerve !

His marriage wasn’t the only thing he’d kept secret from me. According to his FB profile, he’d . . .gone to college in London, lived in New York for a few years, and was working for a firm of chartered accountants

Then I thought, hang on a moment. O.K. I admit I wasn’t the best grandad in the world but I surely wasn’t the worst ? Why would he have cut me out of his life? Then it hit me. He hadn’t. I just couldn’t remember.

I’ve got Alzheimer’s !!!

How else to explain the mismatch between the well-educated, well-travelled, married accountant on FB and my most recent memory of him as a 9 yr old kid ?

  13. Wow great grandad! Time does fly by. I hope it was just a brain glitch and not Alzheimer’s. I have been visiting people with Dementia lately and it is a very difficult diagnosis.
