The Individual and the Group
Georgina has felt low recently, nothing cheers her up and she consults her GP. She forgets things and is not her normal efficient self at home or at work. She is 35 but fears that her apparently failing memory may be a sign of pre-senile dementia. The doctor asks various medical questions and arranges for tests to rule out possible organic causes; he also asks about herself and her circumstances and discovers that her father died recently after a prolonged period as an invalid. She had not visited him and cared for him as much as she had wanted, because of the other demands on her; she also found her step-mother difficult.
