Why the word Insidious?
I chose the word insidious because I feel it’s a very apt description of dementia. The word insidious means operating or proceeding in an inconspicuous or seemingly harmless way but actually with grave effect.
My mom went from being a very creative artist to a woman who couldn’t process what to do with a colored pencil ☹️😥. She went from knowing who the members of her family were to not knowing what my name was and how I was related to her and thinking that my brothers were her brothers.
Insidious —> outwardly to just look at her you wouldn’t really know that inwardly all this wasting away was going on.
