    Hello,
    I am very new to this site my husband has suspected LBD, still not a confirmed diagnosis but I have no doubt!
    It’s two years come Christmas that I first went to GP ( hubby was falling , shuffling etc) I thought Parkinson’s!
    But more to the point, I can only agree with your statements, however when I mentioned to our children they had all suspected something and are supportive, so try not to keep to yourself! I have just written this after sitting here for three hours without him speaking , he’s either asleep or watch’s T.VWithout the sound? lly and feeling sad, but hoping for a diagnosis so that maybe we can get some proper advice!I do hope that using this forum has help you, I have never heard of LBD until I saw it written by the consultant !
    I suspect that you will benefit greatly when things for safety are in place and you can at least have some feeling of relief that things are in place to assist.
    Wishing you all the best and a peaceful and restful night!
