I have a question but I don't know if anyone will have an answer to it. I know that people don't die from AD. Obviously all sufferers circumstances are different but do they die from the side effects? As I said in my first post, I am doing a lecture on the subject. Although I have decided to concentrate my focus on the stages of AD and the history of it I have to have a question and answer session at the end and I am sure it is the sort of question that I will be asked. I want to be as prepared with anwers as I can. If anyone has any answers for me then I would very much appreciate them. Incidentally, I am very happy to say that I now understand a lot more about AD and have been able to piece together how symptoms probably went undetected with my aunt. It doesn't make things any easier but it certainly helps to accept how things are.
