Things That Went Through My Mind When I Read That Anxiety Is Linked to Dementia

  1. F*ck! F*ck! F*ck!
  2. News about anxiety increasing the likelihood of dementia is giving me way more anxiety!
    Which is giving me more dementia!!! Okay, calm down... Time to take a Xanax. --Damn it! That's been linked to dementia too!
  3. Maybe it's a BS non-science article?
    It's not!!! It's a real study from USC. F*ck, f*ck, f*ck.
  4. Maybe USC isn't that good...
    That's your alma mater. Don't pull that thread. ...Alma mater, did I spell that right? Yeah, I did. But it's a weird word. Latin and sh*t. --Focus Lucas! Focus.
  5. Maybe dementia isn't that bad...
    I could re-watch movies over and over. It's as if every movie became Collateral. Perhaps I could photoshop magazine covers with me on them, and pictures of me hanging out with Kanye and Taylor Swift. I could create all these false memories and live in my perfect constructed world.
  6. No, dementia sounds awful. It's your biggest fear.
    Remember Still Alice? Crap, now I'm sad and scared. Nebraska was a good movie, kinda sweet at the end.
  7. Wait, what's the difference between dementia and Alzheimer's?
    "Dementia Is a Group of Symptoms. Dementia isn't a disease. It's a group of symptoms that affect mental tasks like memory and reasoning. Dementia can be caused by a variety of conditions, the most common of which is Alzheimer's disease." ~ thank you Google
  8. Oh my god! Why isn't there a cure?!
  9. Why aren't we funding this?! I'm going to see where I can donate.
  10. Apparently you can donate at-- Ooh, I'll make a list and put it on the list app.
