My Sickness, Your Saviour!!! Creative Short Story For My Biology Class Explaining The Alzheimer's Disease.

848 words - 3 pages

Having a mental disorder is one of the worst things that can happen to you.
Unfortunately I am one of the people who got a mental illness.
I got the Alzheimer's disease, which is one of the most mysterious mental diseases. It is a progressive brain disorder that makes me have short term memory problems. This is how my doctor explains it.
It's kind of strange that I got this disease because usually it attacks people who are over the age of 65.
You probably never heard of this disease but don't worry about it because you are about to.
I was one of you normal people before, when two years ago I noticed that I was having problems learning new information and remembering where I had left common objects such as keys or my wallet, but I didn't pay much attention to it because it happens to people once in a while.

I mean, I was so young to die and the worst thing was that there was no known cure for Alzheimer's disease! (How I hate this word!)
I often became irritable or withdrawn as I was struggling with fear and frustration when once commonplace tasks become unfamiliar and intimidating.
Even the treatment was not so secure, I mean, the doctor wasn't sure himself if it was going to work or not! So, as you can imagine, that was really bad!
He recommended me these drugs called acetyl cholinesterase inhibitors that have had modest but clearly positive effects on the symptoms of the disease. I wasn't starting to get a little bit better at times but then I would turn in an even worse situation. I even stopped taking care of myself and I don't know how that happened. I became completely incapacitated and unable to take care of their most...
