    In 2010, I was diagnoised with Cerebral Atrophy. This morning, I was cooking breakfast in the apartment that I have been living in for a couple months. It was kind of dark near the stove. I looked up to see if this room had a ceiling light. A moment later, realizing where I was, I started laughing about it. Shortly after, I got really sad as I realized that my memory was slipping away from me. Is this typical with Cerebral Athrophy? How soon, on average, will it be before I lose my ability to fiction, doing daily tasks?

    I am so sorry for what your are going through.

    Unfortunately, no doctor replies to posts in this community. It is against the rules in all WebMD communities to provide any type of medical advice.

    The best person to answer your question is a neurologist that specializes in dementia and disorders like yours. That type of doctor can give you an accurate prognosis and recommend effective treatment options.

    I pray you find answers soon.

    Unfortunately, that is not how any WebMD community works. You need to be proactive, do your research and find a doctor that will help you.
