Re: New here, 4/4 in IL

Hello to everyone here... I’m 42, a married woman in Illinois, and I just learned of my 4/4 status after uploading my AncestryDNA data to Promethease. I wasn’t actually as shocked as I might have been, because I’ve already been living with the idea that Alzheimer’s might be in my future because of ...

Re: Anxiety Management for ApoE4

I made a bee-line for this topic as someone who is ApoE4/E3. I've been on antidepressants for almost 20 years until I stopped about two years ago. The older I get, the more I suspect that being on so many antidepressants for so many years actually made me more cognitively impaired than anything els...
