Imagine you were experiencing early signs of memory loss. How would you react?
If things became worse, I would tell those close friends that I know, as they would be more accepting and supportive. Hopefully they would help me cope, and if the worst happened, they would contact my family.
I honestly don’t know how I would cope. The loss of a friend devastated me. If I was aware that my memories of those who I lost were slowly being lost, I would hope that I would have enough support to show me that I still had people who cared about me. If I began to forget about them? I simply don’t know.
