Good evening Arif, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your feelings, but what you are experiencing may not be dementia. By definition, dementia is a term for a group of diseases that decrease brain function which is characterized by difficulty in remembering, speaking, even difficulty in performing daily actions such as bathing, wearing clothes and combing. So dementia is not the name of one particular disease, but rather several diseases that fall into one term namely dementia.
In addition, dementia is a disease that is progressive or worsens slowly, so the most common experience of this condition is the elderly. Even if this is experienced by young people like you, the condition is very, very rare and the doctor will certainly not put it in the first possibility.
So in your case, if you do have certain abnormalities, it could be a personality disorder, developmental disorders that occur since childhood, or maybe conditions that are actually reasonable as you are in the wrong social environment, lacking focus because of various things, and still there are many other possibilities that are more suited to your condition than dementia.
However, we still cannot confirm your condition because we do not check you directly. For this reason, we recommend that you consult a neurologist for further examination of your condition, and assess whether the symptoms that you are experiencing are indeed a sign of an abnormality or not. We understand that you do not want to burden your parents, but the check must be done because if not, the context will only be guessing. And if the guess is wrong, the most disadvantaged is you.
What we can recommend is that if you don't want your parents to be too shocked, you can ask permission to see a general practitioner first, and go alone without your parents. If indeed the doctor generally detects an abnormality later, you can slowly convey it to your parents, maybe to your mother first, not directly to your father. Or if it is still not possible, first consult with a BP teacher or counseling guidance in the place where you study. If it is felt there is an abnormality, your teacher will help facilitate you to your parents.
But the point is, once again, treatment cannot be given without prior inspection because there are many aspects that must be assessed and considered. So whatever you do later, in the end you have to first see a doctor if you want to get the right and accurate treatment. So, hopefully answering your question.
