Script Details

See below. 

Over the last year or so, I’ve started having occasional trouble coming up with the right word for a particular situation. I’ve always been very articulate and this sudden inability to find the appropriate word for a particular context is very upsetting to me.

Other than occasionally forgetting details—like the author of a book I’ve read, or name of the new intern at work—my memory is sharp. I usually run circles around the junior analysts at work.


I do notice that sometimes I feel a little down these days. Usually I’m the optimistic one in my family, and I’m cheerful by nature. It’s nothing I can’t handle, and I manage to hide it from my husband and children, but I just don’t feel right.

I’ve read that many women experience depression at mid-life, and I wondered if it could be hormonal. But I am several years post-menopause.

I visited my gynaecologist and we discussed the pros and cons of oestrogen replacement therapy. But after taking oestrogen for a few months I haven’t noticed much difference.


I’m getting worried. Last week I had another problem thinking of the right word during a presentation. Aren’t I a bit young to be having “senior moments” like this?
I went to my primary care physician. He asked me a lot of questions about what’s been going on, and wanted to know if I have any physical symptoms. He did a physical exam and asked me about any medications I take, including over-the-counter ones.

Part 4
Last week I had another slip-up during a speech at a local investors’ club.
I asked Dr. Jackson for a referral for more extensive testing, and he suggested that I see a neuropsychologist.
After taking a battery of cognitive tests, the neuropsychologist told me that I appear to have a form of mild cognitive impairment called amnestic MCI. I'm scheduled to see a neurologist and undergo more extensive testing to see exactly what is going on. To be honest, I'm starting to worry that it might be something serious, like Alzheimer's.
I asked Dr. Jackson if that is a possibility I should consider. I was hoping he'd say, "No, that's not even a possibility, Marie." But instead, he advised me not to worry until I am fully evaluated by a specialist.
We talked about some general strategies to improve brain health, like getting enough exercise, staying active and involved, and modifying my cardiovascular risk factors. We agreed that I should be periodically monitored for further signs of cognitive and memory problems. I guess we’ll take it from there.
