My husband is 54 and has just been diagnosed with Alzheimers. It came as a real shock to us both. My mother is 86 and has had Alzheimers for over 10 years, so I am familiar with the disease, which doesn't make it easier I may add! My husband, however is in denial. He said he is not going to get any worse, the tablets with make it better and that we should not tell anyone, as no one needs to know. I disagree, and feel that I need to talk about it but don't want to betray him. Will he come to terms with it? Will he ever understand what this disease means to our children and our family?
