I was diagnosed with Alzheimer's about a year ago. I am coming to terms with increasing memory loss. I have acknowledged my problems to friends, colleagues and family, who have been outstandingly supportive. I thank God for them and his care shown through them. An unknown country lies ahead of me but I have put my hand into the hand of God as I walk through it. Coping strategies, humour, drugs and a realistic cutting back of commitments have helped to keep me in control of my life so far. I would welcome contact with people in the same sort of situation.
