  1. Strange Logic

    Had a weird moment with mum today. I took mum shopping and to feed the ducks at the park with little Milly in tow. When I dropped her off I decided to go in and see dad (he's taken a leave from work while he sorts out what he wants to do next) as mum had seemed a bit agitated and I just wanted...

  2. A diagnosis at last!!!!

    Finally, after four years of heartache we have a diagnosis for mum - FTD. Mum had an appointment at Walton yesterday - none of her files or brain scans had been sent over and they had no idea why she was there - not a good start. Unbelievably it's the first appointment I didn't attend - my...

  3. Light Relief

    One advantage of living in a small rural community is that you are likely to be known in a variety of situations. The head of our GP practice often sits in front of us in Church and we have talked over the years. When J. was diagnosed I talked to him about the best way of J. being supported by the...

  6. How very weird...

    I've just picked up on something from Jennifer's comment on one of the other threads (Birthday Present). My mum can barely speak - I believe she has FLD. She can on a good day say an occasional word such as yes or no (although she mixes up the meaning of them) but when we take her to church she...

    God, I hope so!! Dad has finally made the appointment for mum to go to Walton to see the specialists (I think that's what they are - mum's consultant referred her).

  18. Sort of need to get this all off my chest

    My mum first started developing symptoms of Alzheimer's when she was in her late 40s and I was about 20. Unfortunately for my family, we are all too aware of what Alz does to people as my maternal grandmother died from it as well though she developed it a bit later in life. I really don't want to...

    Just a note on spatial awareness. I have noticed that when I am up stairs and Jean is downstairs, she tends to wander a lot from room to room and then gets quite agitated. To combat this I break off from what I am doing every 5 minutes or so, hang over the bannister ans shout "I'm up here...
