This is only my second post so I am very new to the forum. Sorry if my post is a bit of I rant but I need to talk. I am 63 and sometime in this last year I have been diagnosed with Mixed Dementia. It was a shock and left me feeling vulnerable. Last week a was set a memory test which showed a deterioration. I scored 14 out of a possible 30. I feel anxious because as I said I have only been diagnosed in the last year and there seems a rapid decline in terms of my memory.
Already I forget how to spell the most simplest of words and find it difficult to shape the letters i need to form a word. My speech is slurred and I can't pronounce words where hitherto I had no problem with.
I would be grateful for any responses to my post
