The funny thing is, I talked with the same guy a few days later. We had the same conversation.

"I'm sorry to tell you this but you have cancer." "I do?" "Yes, but that's not all...you also have Alzheimers." "I do?" "Yes." "Oh well, at least I don't have cancer"

I once had a man tell me in conversation that he had Alzheimer's. I didn't believe him, as Alz patients rarely have enough insight to discuss it so articulately. By the time he told me for the 5th time, I started to believe that he might be right.
