So my mother-in-law went to the doctor the other day with my sister-in-law and was tested for Alzheimer’s. And guess what? She passed. She got 27 of 30 questions correct, which indicates that she doesn’t have Alzheimer’s Disease. When I asked my husband about the check-up, he said, “No problem!”
His theory is that we have driven her into a paranoid state by complaining about the laundry and distribution of snacks to the grandchildren just before dinner. (And for the record, I haven’t mentioned either in months.)
I was doing some non-scientific research on the Internet last night. While perusing an entry about paranoid schizophrenia, I read that delusions are not considered abnormal in some societies. Maybe Japan is one of them.
