Casey Kasem
is in terrible shape ... his mind is almost gone and he's unable to function -- this according to new legal docs obtained by TMZ.

The document outlines the mental state of the legendary founder of "America's Top 40" radio program.  According to the examining physician, Casey has

-- major impairment to short term, long term and immediate recall memory

-- major impairment to verbally communicate

-- major impairment to perform simple calculations, plan simple tasks and reason logically.

-- severe disorganized thinking

-- moderate hallucinations

The document was filed by Julie, one of Casey's daughters who is trying to become conservator.  Casey's wife of 33 years, Jean, is fighting the move to take control away from her.

The doctor says Casey has been sliding downhill for the last 3 to 4 years.  He's suffering from advanced Parkinson's and dementia.

I dunno something tells me the children are just being very greedy. Didn't care about their father all these years. Now they're back to lay claim to him. The timing of this, as the Enquirer wrote this past week, is quite odd I'm just sayin'.

Isn't this private health information? Leave the man some dignity. I'd like to wish him well and hope he is comfortable.

My prayers for his family. His condition will get worse and it will be very stressful for all parties concerned. Alziemers and dementia does not belong in a civilization that is able to put a remote controlled robot on the surface of another planet.

HE CUT THOSE KIDS OUT OF HIS WILL YEARS AGO. DOESNT THAT TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM? He may have told Jean to not let them within a hundred yards of him. And she knows it's nobody's effing business but the family's as to why she won't let them see him.

Yeah the not so funny side of Parkinson's. The medication taken ove the years eventually eats away at your brain and you develop dementia. You have a choice for a while to decrease the medication to maintain a status quo and slow the process down. Unfortunately this restricts movement further. I hope jean is getting support from somewhere.
