Hi new to this, Its midnight and 10 hours ago my husband was diagnosed with Picks disease. The consultant said that we had been lucky to have been refered so quickly to a specialist. He has been working with the team at Cambridge with Dr John Hodges on early onset. I would loved to know his definition of unlucky!!!. In the meantime my husband is blissfully unaware of the implications of his diagnosal, told by the specialist the name of his disease and that the front of his brain had been affected, my former barrister had no questions as to what this would mean to him or to the family and was more concerned to be on the way home so that he could go back to bed. I however felt that having been given the grim news, I was sent off with an attitude of "now get on with it, we will see you in 3 months". Happy Christmas to him too. David was informed that he would no longer be allowed to drive as his reaction times will be affected, I joked that I would be his personal chauffer - so my caps on " jump aboard were off on a magical mystery tour". If there is anyone out there with a partner in their 40's I would love some advice/ know that I am not alone. Still smiling just, if only for our 6 year old.
