This is my first post so not really sure what I'm doing! My lovely sister was diagnosed last week with early on-set Alsheimer's. She's only 56. We're all still in shock. Reading all your posts, it's reassuring that there's people out there who are going through the same situation. I feel quite overwhelmed with sadness.
