I have never used a chat room before and this is my first post. My wife has Alzheimer's and is in total denial that she has a problem. A neurologist diagnosed NPH, but did say that peripheal atrophy was present as well as a possible slight stroke from some time ago. My wife had a cerebral shunt installed and that had no effect on her condition. My wife and I are constantly together and because she does not recognize the changes she is undergoing it is impossible to talk to her about the situation and impossible to talk to others either. My lack of intellectual contact with other adults is beginning to weigh heavily on me and I hope that through this post I can find others to talk with and perhaps gain some insights in regard to dealing with this.
