I remember when first learning about FTD, reading about sufferers placing objects in thier mouths. I witnessed Mum doing this for the first time yesterday. After lunch she began to rip small pieces of paper from an envelope on the table, placing them in her mouth and chewing them. She saw nothing wrong with this until I asked her what she was doing, at which point she spat them out like a toddler would saying yuk. Does this indicate a new stage of the illness for Mum?
