Hi leolouo,leolouo wrote:Hi, i am looking for advice, confidence, and comfort. ...
You understand while im very scared here, waiting for my next appointment on 3 Weeks.
...I am still obviously capable to be Quick and effective in my reasoning but it does feel like im not There sometimes.
I Read all of those very encouraging stories and the fact that i Twitch, have trouble sleeping is very worrying that it might too late for me to prevent things to happen. Im very thin, i have difficulties to gain weight, dont have high blood Sugar, (my Dr even Says i have antidiabetes) so im not sure what to change in my Diet.
I m not sure how to bring this to my neurologist or to foresee future. im scared at this point and would love to have your opinions....
Also: cbd/thc oil Makes me feel better but im not sure if dangers long term... Any opinion?
1. Scientists are beginning to realize that ApoE 4 is NOT ENOUGH to bring on Alzheimers--other factors and other genes, which are only beginning to be identified, are also necessary.
. 2 Early-onset Alzheimer's is NOT caused by ApoE 4; it is caused by very specific genes that are dominant in some families. People with this gene have many relatives who died of Alzheimer's in their 40's or 50's. It is possible for some people to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's at a relatively young age (late 50's or early 60's) with ApoE 4, but usually they also had some very specific other factors: Down's Syndrome, early severe brain injury, etc. You are not at risk of Alzheimer's anytime soon!!
3. It sounds like your neurologist is trying to figure out what is causing the twitching you feel, and having a name and some suggestions for how to treat it, with medication, or with other strategies, may give you a sense of being more in control.
4. It also sounds like you may have been feeling a lot of anxiety, and maybe dread or fear, and a sense of being "not there" that have caused sleep problems--and may be worse because of sleep problems. I don't know a lot about CBD oil, but if I were you I would talk with my regular doctor if possible before the next appointment with the neurologist and show him this post--or at least tell him how you have been feeling. Anxiety is a common mental health issue, especially for people your age who are often juggling lots of stressful changes in adulthood. It's perfectly okay to ask for some help with that.
Please tell us a little more about yourself if you can. And please promise us that if you feel truly overwhelmed, and don't see a way forward, that you will call 911 or a local hotline to talk to someone. Hugs from someone who wants you to reach a better tomorrow.
Thanks, to be honest, its the first thing I read, and already ordered what I considered was the most important. Im starting soon, a bit scared of secondary effect ( on the digestive tract mostly )You may also like the Primer which is an introduction to APOE4, biochemistry and possible prevention strategies written by Dr. Stavia a member, in laymans terms, plus plenty of other helpful resources.

It's also nearly impossible to overdose on CBD. Kind of like water, dark chocolate, and steamed kale, it has an unusually low level of toxicity. In the last 6,000 years, CBD hasn’t killed anyone via overdose, which is particularly impressive when you compare it to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, Advil and Tylenol, which can wreak havoc on your gut lining, liver and kidneys. Or aspirin (salicylic acid) which kills over 1,000 people every year. Or alcohol, which kills over 110,000 people a year. No one’s ever died from CBD.

My coma only last 30 seconds to 1 minute or so and i didnt have symptoms after but something changed in me for good after. I wasnt able to grasp my environnement the way i used to after, more slow, less depressed but less enjoyed, a bit more apathic. I learnt to live with it but i think it slightly got worse.
