I feel like my memory and fluid intelligence is just going to shit. I can barely retain any new information. Literally just remembering a new word or something is so hard it takes so many repetitions to get it to stick and then I forget it the next day. Both my grandparents got Alzheimer's really bad so I know I likely have it in my genes.

I wasted my youth not learning useful skills and having good experiences.

I feel terrified of getting like my grandparents; getting even older and not being able to look after myself. Forgetting who my family members are. Shitting myself and basically losing my soul. I would rather just kill myself but I think I would be too frightened to do it and the feeling of being trapped between choosing Alzheimer's or suicide makes me want to scream.

i think having alzheimers would be comfy

Life is full of random unpredictable suffering. You just have to accept that fact and get over it. The more you can learn to live in the moment, the better.

You have no idea what the fuck you are talking about. Imagine screaming and crying because you are confused and frightened all the time. Imagine the slow realisation that you are forgetting the faces of your parents. I watched my grandpa lose his dignity and mind and in moments of self awareness between the screaming he would say ‘It’s pathetic isn’t it.’

Wow.

It's a daily realization that the world is like 99% unthinking chimps and not real people.

Almost 6 years of near complete social isolation has made me feel retarded

just do whatever you can to maintain your mental acuity. meditate, learn a second language, exercise, eat healthy, sleep enough. generally just live a healthy life style. i have utterly shit memory, but since taking up learning a second language, i've noticed improvements. do what you can to maintain your mind. there is a huge body of evidence that metal decay can be greatly mitigated, or at the least, delayed noticeably. and if it is your doom to decay (in spite of your efforts not to), then worrying about it is a waist of energy.

My mental functioning seems to be cyclical which is, sadly, consistent with my mental illness diagnosis. I wish I could be functional at all times and not just occasionally.

I feel it as well at 30. I can barely do my job properly anymore and I'm sure I'll get fired soon enough

 No.246391

I came to an epiphany regarding the ultimate uselessness of words and now my mind is no longer wracked by the vitriolic argumentation I once vainly classified as intelligence. Once everything becomes absurd any actions and mental tricks enter their last usage as the irrefragable destroyer carves its way across the mind, leaving behind stupefaction and noble slothfulness.

This is why I'm roping at 50.

I have taken modafinil. The effect is subtle but real. It is like a big cup of coffee without the jitteriness

>Nature teaches us that there is basically only one disease
The person who wrote this has probably dedicated a major chunk of his life to fasting and its effects on health, only to show, in the span of half a sentence, that you cannot take any of his words seriously. Truly amazing

Pro tip, if you see "warp","warp waning", or the book grain brain linked, then you are dealing with one of the local schizos and should just leave him be.

If you have any other books you enjoy that you would want to recommend, I would be interested (any genre)
