  2. Advice needed please

    Well what a palaver Friday night was. Dad asked me to take mum shopping for some new clothes - she has put on an awful lot of weight and none of her clothes fit her anymore. My sister and I decided to do this together as we thought it would be easier. The first problem we encountered that we...

  9. Health concerns

    As part of mum's FTD she has developed a real sweet tooth and is scoffing chocolates and sweets at an alarming rate. Other than the weight gain I'm slightly concerned about how this diet is affecting her health because to be honest her breath smells terrible. I've asked dad about whether she's...

  11. Can't visit

    Dear All It's been ages since I've posted; been trying (succesfully) to keep busy. Dad, now aged 54, went into a nursing home last month (3 years since he was diagnosed). Went through a whole range of emotions before convincing myself that it was a positive step. Unfortunately, I have found out...

However, have got back to find mum considerably worse - I can't believe how much worse given that I was only away a week. Although mum hasn't been able to talk for a while now she would at...

  13. Question Will I Be A Better Person After This ?

    This morning for the first time ever my Susan said she wished she could kill herself. Usually it is I don't want to be here, or I wish I was with my mum & dad. I have this most mornings and during the day. But this morning it was "kill myself". How can someone have this recall when they cannot even...

    My mum has AZ. She is now 64 and was diagnosed about 5 years ago. What I am trying to do at the moment are find activities that she can do on her own to a) boost her confidence that she can still do something on her own without help and b) allow Dad even half an hour to read the paper or surf the...

  17. Memory clinics

    Can I ask what these memory clinics are? Are they just for AZ? Mum has FTD and struggles to speak so I don't know whether it would help her anyway. I just feel like we have a diagnosis but no one is saying anything else - it's like they don't know what to do with us.

  18. I Prefer the ANGER

    Heartbreaking. I prefer it when Susan is angry and abusive. Not physically abusive. When she is angry I can turn-off. Swears at me, tells me how useless I am, tells me she is not doing that, does not want me looking at her, It goes over my head. It is the disease not Susan. When she sobs to me...

    Well mum's appointment with the consultant yesterday could not have gone worse. I don' think I've ever been so annoyed - then again I say that every time. At one point I felt that blood should have been coming out of my ears. Point 1. We get in there and she asks mum how she is and mum says...

    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...

    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...

  25. 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...
