Executive Functioning & Diseases of Aging

ADD . . . and-so-much-more

A Humanitarian Problem
short-sighted at best – unconscionable at worst

This might be the most important post I have ever written
(out of 500+ information-dense articles).
It applies to every single one of us,
so I hope you will take the time to read it all.

A tragic implication of Boiling Frog Syndrome

As I began in an article as part of the Executive Functioning Series, two Mondays ago [How well do you REALLY function?], when things decline gradually we tend to accommodate the accumulation of difficulties until we are struggling to cope and practically desperate for help.

Before I continue with a Series of articles designed to describe and discuss EF struggles, what’s involved, and explain what you can do to mitigate the effects (before, during and after they develop)

    Had to jump over here to say thanks again. The numbers are daunting, aren’t they? Even if you could overlook the pain and suffering, how can those numbers not scare anybody allocating research funds into action *without* having to rally a crowd to shout out the news?

    I’m willing to get out the megaphone, but I sure do appreciate your help with the shouting. Thanks so much for the reblog.

      You are welcome! People, especially the young, are deaf to anything that involves aging, yet those conditions are the ones we are almost certain to have if we live long enough.

        I believe Aubrey had it right – they don’t believe there is anything that can be done, they don’t want to think about “the inevitable,” so they do nothing until it’s upon them (the dark side of “positivity”).

        By thinking about it, they can DO something about it – because the science is almost there, they just need FUNDING to go to the next step – sparing so much pain and suffering for so many people.

        But it won’t happen overnight. We do need to start NOW for the research to have time to do for mankind what it has done in non-human trials before it is too late.

        But nothing will be appropriated by our politicians unless “the public” is behind it – they don’t want to think about it either. That’s why spreading the word is SO important. Thanks again.

        What a talented poet, judging by the example in the post. As is my habit, I took time to read the comments as well, and some were frustrating and disturbing – had to respond with one of my own. I WILL link to this post in my next article on Depression (or comorbids). Thanks for the heads up.
