The next section of the brain to be destroyed by Alzheimer’s is the part where language is processed. It becomes hard to find the right words to express what the person is thinking or feeling.
From there it takes over the part of the brain that controls the logical thought process. This makes it difficult to solve problems or to make plans. It would also make it difficult to do day to day stuff like balancing a checkbook or even baking a cake.
Alzheimer’s is greedy it wants the whole thing and leaves no portion untouched. The person will begin to lose control over their moods and emotions. They may get angry or upset for no apparent reason. They are happy when they should be sad and vice versa.
After it has destroyed all of that then it moves to the part of the brain where our senses are located. Things that are sweet may suddenly taste bitter. This can spark hallucinations. It robs the person of their oldest and most cherished memories and they begin to forget the people they love the most.
After it has done all of that it will begin to erode their balance and coordination. They may fall more frequently or have a hard time with hand and eye coordination. It’s very important to think “home safety” check every day to make sure hazards are dealt with quickly before they can escalate into a full-blown emergency.
Lastly, the disease destroys the part of the brain that controls breathing and heartbeat. It is a horrible disease that takes over the brain much like Trump has taken over the U.S. and that’s NEVER a good thing!
The progression of Alzheimer is slow and steady. It doesn’t rest, there’s no remission, nor does it give up. Alzheimer’s generally takes 8-10 years to destroy a person’s whole life.
