    I don't know what to call this phenomenon but I'm trying to figure out if this is a "normal" or "typical" occurrence in this early stage of Alzheimer's. .
    My husband is still in early stages - short--term memory bad but still working, driving etc But this seems to be getting worse. He thinks he's seen or experienced things before. Watching a game on tv he's sure it's a rerun because he just saw those two teams play. A girl walking down the street with a bunch of balloons he has seen every day that week in the same outfit with that bunch of balloons. The weather girl on tv has worn that same outfit every day - etc. etc. It sounds innocuous and I suppose it is, but it is a bit nerve-wracking and hard to have a conversation because he just isn't making sense!!!Somehow I think it will help me a bit if I know others experience this.
