Pharmacist delivers alzheimer’s drugs to Congress

Congressional pharmacy delivers Alzheimer drugs to members of Congress. Now this explains a lot. I am not meaning to make light of alzheimer’s. It is a very serious sickness my grandmother died from complications from alzheimer’s. We visited her very often and it pained me to see what the disease was doing to her mind. To have leaders of the free world suffering from this disease and staying in power is unbelievable.

A D.C. pharmacist says he has delivered drugs for “pretty serious health problems” including Alzheimer’s according to a recently published article.

“At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country,” Kim told STAT. “It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’

Members of Congress are suffering from health problems including Alzheimer’s and diabetes. In case you are not familiar I am listing some of the major complications below.

Memory Loss that disrupts daily life

One of the most common signs of Alzheimer’s is memory loss, especially forgetting recently learned information. Others include forgetting important dates or events; asking for the same information over and over; increasingly needing to rely on memory aids (e.g., reminder notes or electronic devices) or family members for things they used to handle on their own.

Challenges in planning or solving problems

Some people may experience changes in their ability to develop and follow a plan or work with numbers. They may have trouble following a familiar recipe or keeping track of monthly bills. They may have difficulty concentrating and take much longer to do things than they did before.

Confusion with time or place

People with Alzheimer’s can lose track of dates, seasons and the passage of time. They may have trouble understanding something if it is not happening immediately. Sometimes they may forget where they are or how they got there.

New problems with words or speaking

People with Alzheimer’s may have trouble following or joining a conversation. They may stop in the middle of a conversation and have no idea how to continue or they mayrepeat themselves. They may struggle with vocabulary, have problems finding the right word or call things by the wrong name (e.g., calling a “watch” a “hand-clock”).

Decreased or poor judgement

People with Alzheimer’s may experience changes in judgment or decision-making. For example, they may use poor judgment when dealing with money, giving large amounts to telemarketers. They may pay less attention to grooming or keeping themselves clean.

I will not speculate which members of Congressional  pharmacy delivers Alzheimer’s drugs to because as I said before the disease hits home with me. But there are signs with many members of Congress. The reason they do not resign power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
