CONFUSION “MEDICAL REASONS WE FEEL CONFUSED, A SYMPTOM OF DEMENTIA”

CONFUSION                               “MEDICAL REASONS WE FEEL CONFUSED, A SYMPTOM OF DEMENTIA”

OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD TODAY IS CONFUSION.  WHY DO WE FEEL CONFUSED, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT INVOLVES MAKING A DECISION?  IS EXPERIENCING CONFUSION OFTEN, A SIGN OF AN UNDERLYING CONDITION MEDICALLY OR PSYCHOLOGICALLY?  SOMETIMES, EXPERIENCING CONFUSION IS PERFECTLY NORMAL, ESPECIALLY WHEN WE HAVE TO MAKE A TOUGH CHOICE!  THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT ANSWERS TO A PROBLEM WE ARE HAVING, AND WE CAN’T SEEM TO FIGURE OUT OUR ANSWER.  ONE REASON WE MAY BE CONFUSED IS  OUT OF “FEAR” MAKING THE WRONG DECISION. THE EASIEST WAY TO MAKE THE DECISION CAUSING CONFUSION IS TO MAKE A LIST OF THE POSITIVES FOR US BASED ON WHICH DECISION WE PICK. 

LET US TAKE A LOOK AT THE DEFINITION OF CONFUSION IN OUR WEBSTER DICTIONARY AND THE DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION.  WEBSTER DEFINITION OF CONFUSION-1.LACK OF UNDERSTANDING;  UNCERTAINTY  2.  THE STATE OF BEWILDERNENT OR BEING UNCLEAR IN ONE’S MIND. 

DAILY  WISDOM WORD DEFINITION-FEELING MENTALLY DISCOMBBULATED.  THERE ARE SEVERAL REASONS WE MAY FEEL CONFUSED WHICH ARE CAUSED MEDICALLY OR MENTALLY.

BEFORE GOING INTO DEMENTIA AND CONFUSION FURTHER, IT IS NORMAL TO FEEL SOME CONFUSION AS I MENTIONED ABOVE.   HOWEVER, WHEN CONFUSION OF THE MIND HAPPENS TOO OFTEN, THERE IS USUALLY AN UNDERLYING REASON SUCH AS PSYCHOLOGICAL OR A MEDICAL REASON.

BEFORE I COVER JUST SOME OF THESE REASONS, RECENTLY, HARVARD UNIVERSITY COMPLETED A STUDY OF OLD AGE IN RELATION TO DEMENTIA  WHICH IS ONE OF THE MAJOR CAUSES OF CONFUSION AND FOUND THAT THE HUMAN BRAIN WITHSTANDS HUMAN AGING BETTER THAN PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT.  A TERM CALLED “SUPERAGING”, IS COMMON WITH SOME CHANGES IF YOUR CONFUSION AND DEMENTIA IS NOT PHYSICAL OR MENTAL.  HERE ARE JUST A FEW REASONS WE MAY EXPERIENCE DEMENTIA. 

1. OUR DIET.  WE SHOULD BE EATING SIX LEAFY GREEN SERVINGS OF VEGETABLES PER DAY.   TWO SERVINGS FOR THE BODY AND MIND OF MIXED BERRIES ARE NEEDED TO FEEL LESS CONFUSED AND AVOID THE SYMPTOMS OF DEMENTIA AND CONFUSION FOR OUR BRAIN AS WELL.  FISH AND POULTRY, TWO SERVINGS PER DAY ARE ALSO RECOMMENDED AS WELL AS ONE SERVING OF NUTS PER DAY.   

2.  DEPRESSION-WHAT MANY DON’T REALIZE IS WHEN WE ARE DEPRESSED, IT OFTEN CAUSES CONFUSION.  USUALLY, DEPRESSION IS EITHER CAUSED BY SITUATIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES OR IS AN IMBALANCE OF CERTAIN CHEMICALS IN THE BRAIN  

3.  CERTAIN DISEASES SUCH AS ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE AND PARKINSONS DISEASE CAUSE DEMENTIA AND CONFUSION IS THE MAJOR SYMPTOM.  THE DIET WE FOLLOW CAN HAVE A POSITIVE EFFECT ON OUR DEMENTIA EVEN IF CAUSED BY THESE DISEASES ADDING CONFUSION  

4.  LACK OF SLEEP ON A REGULAR BASIS. 5.  DEHYDRATION.  MANY STUDIES HAVE SHOWN NOT DRINKING ENOUGH WATER EVERY DAY CAN HAVE A NEGATIVE EFFECT ON OUR OVERALL HEALTH AND BRAIN CAUSING CONFUSION.  DRINK 64  OUNCES OF LIQUID PER DAY

5.  OTHER MENTAL ILLNESSES SUCH AS SCHIZOPHRENIA AND PHYSICAL PAIN.

6.  LACK OF MENTAL STIMULATION CAN CAUSE CONFUSION. 7.  LIFESTYLE CHOICE TO BE ACTIVE

8. HEREDITY

CONFUSION AND DEMENTIA SOMETIMES HAPPEN WHEN WE GET OLDER AND ARE ONE OF THE CAUSES OF DEMENTIA/FORGETFULNESS AND CONFUSION RATHER THAN THE AGING ITSELF. 

WHAT CAN WE DO TO IMPROVE DEMENTIA?  AS I MENTIONED ABOVE, FORGETFULNESS AND DEPRESSION CAN HAVE A LARGE EFFECT IN CAUSING DEMENTIA IE., CONFUSION.  I ALSO MENTIONED THAT SOME CONFUSION IS NORMAL AND CAN SIMPLY BE WE HAVE TOO MUCH ON OUR MINDS.  OUR DIETS, HEREDITY, DEHYDRATION, CERTAIN MENTAL AND PHYSICAL ILLNESSES CAUSE DEMENTIA AND CONFUSION.  PLEASE SHARE WITH ME IF THIS ARTICLE WAS HELPFUL TO YOU IN SOME WAY OR YOU HAVE A COMMENT OR QUESTION AND LEAVE IT BENEATH THIS POST IN THE “JOIN THE DISCUSSION AREA.”  THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING.
