How to deal with oblivion if we are formed by memory?
The disease. of oblivion is presented to us as a tragedy. 
Clinging to our memories, forgetfulness moves forward and goes deep into our bodies.
The fragility to which we are exposed when we lose our memory leaves us vulnerable.
What identifies us as individuals are our memories, our history, and we are terrified of losing our essence. 
We cling to the idea of not disconnecting from ourselves.
The day-to-day life of a 79-years-old woman with dementia caused by epilepsy, also afflicts her by Parkinson's disease, at her family home, where she has been prostrate for more than 5 years. 
The loss of motos skills, loss of language and memory make deterioration visible over the years until her death.
