“As a young cowgirl from the Arizona desert, I never could have imagined that one day I would become the first woman justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor made history decades ago when she became the first female to hold a position on the nation’s highest court.

She announced today that doctors diagnoses her “with the beginning stages of dementia, probably Alzheimer’s disease.”

She wrote: “How fortunate I feel to be an American to have been presented with the remarkable opportunities available to the citizens of our country. As a young cowgirl from the Arizona desert, I never could have imagined that one day I would become the first woman justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.”

O’Connor also wrote that she hopes she has “inspired young people about civic engagement and helped pave the pathway for women who may have faced obstacles pursuing their careers.”

Chief Justice John Roberts released this statement:

Comments

She’s going straight to hell when she dies.

It’s a horrible disease. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. For many years she cared for her husband who was suffering from it, so in this early stage she realizes what awaits her and her family. My prayers go out to all of them.

I hope she gets her thyroid function tested.

My family has a history of hypothyroidism–and its symptoms often resemble Altheimer’s. The good part is that the dementia can be easily controlled using levothyroxine–which is taken orally and is extremely safe.
