In memory of Mother: Preventing brain illness part one

See also

Mother and Father were always concerned about possible brain illness. When one still has their mind, they can function quite well. As Mother grew older and became an empty-nester, she had difficulty remaining active. She knew, much like Father, that mental conditions such as depression and anxiety also became more common with age and can be exacerbated by physical illness and loneliness. Depression may indicate the presence of a disease such as Alzheimer’s, while depression and anxiety are common in those already suffering from it.

While Mother had difficulty keeping active, Father continued becoming more involved with his hobbies. Father liked to go fishing, go bowling, go walking and solve crossword puzzles found in the newspaper. Eventually, Mother got more into reading, when she received a subscription to Reader’s Digest, as well as her children providing books that she would like to read.

Therefore, one needs to realize that when it comes to brain illness, it’s not just the food we eat, but how we live our lives and this becomes “food for thought.”
