Re: My chances of getting Alzheimer's?
You have as much chance of getting AZ. as you do getting hit by a bus while crossing the street. They actually don't know who gets it and why or when. You will better your chances of not getting it by staying mentally sharp and keeping your brain alert. Play mind games, read, stimulate yourself, stay fit both physically and mentally. Worrying won't do you a bit of good.
There are making great strides in the treatment of this horrid disease so if by some chance you do get it, they may have a cure, or have found a drug that will keep it at bay or at the early stages for decades. I lost my mother to the disease and my dad had vascular dementia, but I refuse to worry about that. Life is too short to spend my time worrying.
If you want more information, contact your local Alzheimers Association. They have a wealth of information that you can have. It will fill you in on all the stages and the research going on right now.
