Hi Sally, welcome to Talking Point (TP), although I am sorry that someone so young has need to find us.

I shall try to move your post into our "Younger persons with dementia" section, where you should receive more support.

Of course you are welcome to post in any section, any time.

Hi Sally, I am the same age as you and it breaks my heart to hear you have early onset AD, I don't know what to say, my Dad has AD and that is bad enough. I'll be your friend though :eek: xx

Hi Sally

It's a shame to be welcoming you in these awful circumstances.

At 42 it seems just so unfair :(

Wishing you all the best.

Hello Sally,

How I feel for you - you certainly have come to the right place for support - we will help you the best we can.

As you are so young, do you know anything further about your diagnosis of AD? Have you been told that any particular area of your brain is affected? Much of the treatment and coping skills depend on what kind of Alzheimer's Disease you have.

Thinking of you.

Hi Sally1968,
This is my first post too. My mum was diagnosed with Alzheimer's at age 59. I was compelled to respond to you're post because I realise no one has responded that is as young as you but I have read posts on here about people your age and younger so please don't feel alone. Sorry I don't have more to offer.
