  1. Interaction with young children

    Hi everyone, My mum was diagnosed earlier this year with early onset. With the benefit of hindsight, she probably has been showing signs of the illness for at least 2 years, maybe longer. One of the ways that the illness is currently affecting her is in her willingness to interact and the...

    I think I am going to flip. I'm crying, I feel bad I just had a go at Susan for following me everywhere, standing behind me ALL the time, when I'm shaving, looking at me, not saying anything, Follows me humbly in the garden, upstairs, everywhere. I can cope with doing everything, but just having...

  5. Is diagnosis always so difficult?

    Hi All I say this a bit tongue in cheek because of course I know it is always difficult and "only time will tell" as has been said a few times - I am also guilty of this! However I wonder if anyone has experienced the MEAMS test. My husband was tested by an OT and all the bits sensitive to...

    Well what a scare I had yesterday. As usual on my day off work I look after my daughter and niece (both aged 2) and my mum. Yesterday I also had my 8 year old nephew and my mother in law. Foolishly perhaps we changed routine because I wanted to take the girls to a "beach" they had set up in...
