Most people of my generation secretly, and often not so secretly, express their fear of this disease.   Whenever we forget why we went to the basement, or stand in front of the fridge wondering why we are there, or find our car keys in the fridge, that diagnosis flashes in front of our mind's eyes. We are relieved if friends joke about their forgetfulness, or we read about normal signs of aging vesus signs of dementia and sigh with relief if we deem ourselves to still be okay.
