Biden, your diagnosis?

The blank stare? Double downing on delusional comments? Shuffle steps? Body movements that don’t seem to go along with what he is saying? Little episodes of confusion with mumbled words? Overreaction to critical comments? Stumbling? Not knowing where he is going? The reliance on prompting by his spouse?

This all doesn’t seem to go with common age related mental diseases. His rhetoric is too connected, whether telling the truth or lying he’s consistent. More like he’s overstimulated, like too many cups of coffee on top of too little sleep. Or maybe overdosed on performance enhancement steroids.

There’s something not right there. My layman’s diagnosis is anabolic steroid OD. His doc will adjust the dosage and in the next debate some of the symptoms will be diminished or go away. It’s why he hasn’t thrown in the towel.

He’s also seriously compromised mentally. I agree they don’t have his meds aligned. And we’ll see what happens when they make an adjustment.

I've had conversations in the past with a few physicians I used to work with who by mere observation on TV segments suggest that his stiffness paired with undoubted cognitive decline is generally characteristic of Parkinson's-related dementia.

@Heartlander I agree on all points.

And speaking of facial feature modifications, I have always wondered why little to nothing has ever been mentioned about Biden's facial features as he has aged like we all do, but with the difference being that there is absolutely NO resemblance of the younger Joe Biden (even just 25 years ago) vs the Biden as recent as 2020 forward.
That's not the norm even for older folks with bad facial surgeries who failed at the attempt to want to look a little younger.

@RipCord You mean you 'concur'. If you're gonna be an Internet physician at least learn the lingo ffs!

@RipCord AnotherParkinson’s hint is the whispering, the voice decreasing in volume as the disease progresses. Along with that is shrinking handwriting. Not everyone with Parkinson’s has the same symptoms. Parkinson’s is very common on one side of my family. As much as I can feel sympathy for him and his family, if it is Parkinson’s, he really should resign.

Difficulty communicating: I notice that Dr. Stephen Hawking had many of those same difficulties - attributable to cerebral palsy. Diseases overtake our bodies and impede us from doing many physical things - like walking, our eyesight, our speech. I think Joe Biden has come to that point in his life.

However, clarity of thought - however difficult it may be to enunciate it and formulate into a 'normal' statement, does not mean that the person's mind is disordered. The clarity of thought is there but the words tumble out in mixed order. His thoughts though center on the needs of other people.

Now, lets take that in comparison to Donald Trump whose thought processes center on 'self' = himself and how to attain power and demean and control other people:

Of the two people, where Biden's thoughts and actions come clear with explanation, I find those thought patterns of Trump much more disturbing. For the most part he has no trouble formulating his speech but the content of his speech is very shallow and he is very defensive of his ego.

@sunsporter1649 My bridge is worth more than your bridge!
But: I think both of us would be better off trying to hype something else!

Because none of us are medical doctors, it is somewhat irresponsible to try to diagnose our President, whom we don't know personally.

I did hear a neurologist on television speculate that Biden has a particular form of dementia which affects his gait. However, I would like to point out that the neurologist was being irresponsible trying to pin a diagnosis to Biden without an examination.

@4meAndyou youre making super lefty excuses. You refuse to believe your eyes and ears

@Patriot96 Nope. I can believe whatever I want...but I am NOT a trained medical doctor. AND I am NOT a lefty...which you should know by now.
after watching him I just hope the nuclear launch button and his life alert button aren't on the same lanyard
Biden is bonkers and encouraged by his bimbo wife. What she is doing to him should be considered elder abuse.
