Lady In Distress,

No, it doesn't sound like you are dealing with dementia at all. It sounds like you are dealing with a very complicated situation, that you may be depressed and that you are anxious about a lot of things going on in your life. And that you are having a perfectly normal reaction to the changes in your life.

Can I ask you a few questions?

Are you being treated for depression? Do you have a doctor? Do you have any insurance?

Do you have pain medication for your daily pain?

Why are you afraid for your children?
