Patient discussion about remember

Q. Do you remember the popcorn diet Madonna was on? Can anyone explain how does this diet work?

A. thanks for valuable info!
I searched for it here on iMedix and indeed found several articles about the subject. One of them is:

Q. I suffer from depression and feel many times that I cannot remember things. Here's another question that I encounter a lot of times: "I suffer from depression and feel many times that I cannot remember things. Is there a relationship between Depression and Alzheimer disease?"

A. Daphna, I appreciate your taking the time for this question. It is something I worry about and just discussed with my doctor last week. I know that for me, some days are more difficult (kind of cloudy) than others. Some days it seems to take me all day to get my daily reading/prayer/meditation done. But I am no longer in a hurry now that I am retired. My doctor said all I needed was a cup of coffee to get going and that always helps me just fine. Walking for me is also very stimulating. Seems like when I get back from a walk, I get a new persective on things. Thanks again Daphna.

Q. I'm having problem remembering how to operate a computer software. Is learning possible only at a young age? I have been trying to learn a new software program that my kids got me but I keep forgetting how to get it started. Is learning possible only at a young age?

A. This is a common concern among older adults. However the answer is actually- not at all. People can learn throughout their life span. In fact, it is important to continue and learn new skills as we age. Learning new skills, like new games, new dances, and a new language, and playing a musical instrument, help keep our mind sharp longer. With age, we may be slower to pick up new information. However, the ability to learn does not go away unless we are inflicted with dementia. It may require more effort but you can continue to learn.

Poets have limited years to work with words - Worcester's Charles Olson died in 1970 at just 59 - but the wellsprings they tap stay fresh and wondrous as long as they have readers and rememberers.
In order for memory to function, there must be rememberers. Silent and still illegible, hidden and covered over as though by a shroud, after death and entombment, the dead body threatens to negate the living body, rendering the life-beyond-death that should be represented in the expression hors an unattainable ideal.
But the value of Architexts of Memory lies less in conceptual innovation than in the details: in the fond, sympathetic attention it turns to the writings of Proust, Woolf, George Eliot, Nerval, and other talkative rememberers.

By this, Dubois does not suggest "that there is a group of forgetters and another of rememberers." As she puts it, "for one thing, to remember some things is to forget others." (176) Not only does what neighbours remember, or not, matter, but also how they remember.
