It scares me to think that medication is the answer to issues.

 I read so many times about some issue one is having that people without dementia just don’t understand. More  and more I see some one recommending medications to help. I keep telling folks one needs to become a detective and one needs to try to think from there point of view. You may need to think like a child a 5 years old to try to discover their thinking. Some times play along with them and seek more clues. It really does work as I have heard many stories personally from Teepa on how one can figure things out but it takes lots of time and thinking out side the box.

Michael- I agree with you- but I feel that my DH was truly miserable (angry and sobbing frequently) before medication. It’s a matter of quality of life.
