This illness of my aunt lasts for 6-7 years. It started with forgetting, losing their belongings. The people he worked with noticed this, too. He did not accept this ailment for a long time. “Look at yourselves,” he said while he was himself. After my grandmother and aunt passed away one after the other, the emotional things she went through triggered this disease. He did not use thyroid pills for a certain period of time. He told me in one of our conversations, ‘I want to die forgetting everything’. He is a person who has preferred to live on his own since the age of 18 and is happy with his cats. His nervous and suspicious nature developed further with the disease. Over the past few years, his words have become unbelievable. 3 years ago, we received a complaint from around, I went to his house. His house was very messy. I wanted to tidy up but he wouldn’t let me. We wanted to call the doctors but he refused. We try to look as long as we can. There is no cure for this disease yet. The drugs only slow down the symptoms. His physical health is good, but his brain is like this…

You cannot say to an 88-year-old woman, ‘Your daughter is dead’. ‘Why does Nuran not come?’ my mother says, ‘We say she is in the hospital.’ We said that from the very beginning. My mother said, ‘Can a person stay in bed for three months? Go, change his doctor.’ Afterwards, Nuran was the child she was most fond of… My mother didn’t call me ‘Pakize’, she always called me ‘Nuran'”.
