People suffering from Alzheimer s do not know or agree that they are suffering. Similar changes can be seen in depression, which is why it called pseudo-dementia. It would be wise for you to consult a psychiatrist, get evaluated and remedy. It would be dramatic and changes can be seen in few weeks. All the best.
