This blog is called Streams of Consciousness and my intention is always to write from what I consider my consciousness. When I went back and read my blog from last week, I realized I made an incorrect statement and feel the necessity of retracting something I said.
So, here goes. I said that my mother has dementia. What I should have said is that I believe my mother has the beginning stages of dementia, based on what I see and what I know about dementia. However, I am not a doctor and therefore am not qualified to make a diagnosis on anyone’s state of mental or physical health. Forgive me for my haughtiness in making that statement.
