After the Changing Melody Forum, a woman was discussing her husband with me. She said one of the things that’s particularly bothersome is his inability to control his swearing. She said it’s particularly bad because he used to be in the Navy, so he has a fairly extensive vocabulary.
With the start of Alzheimer's disease two major factors are going to increase the likelihood that the person will swear or use other forbidden words when they become stressed or frustrated. First of all they lack impulse control. If they think it, they will say it or do it. They can no longer control an impulse. That part of their brain is damaged.
I’m using swear words I wasn’t even aware I knew! All I can think is I should probably be buying large quantities of Duct Tape!
