I have been newly diagnosed with Progressive Aphasia

I am still gathering all the info I can about it and dementia in general. Sometimes it seems like the diagnosis was a dream and it could not possibly be me the neurologist was discussing. I have thought "why me" and then came to my senses and thought "why not me!" I am 61 and have taught for 26 years. Now I have to consider not teaching this fall and try to make some new financial plans. I have another appointment soon to confirm the diagnosis and check out some new study. The golden refers to our beautiful golden retriever and I am a grandmother--golden grammy.
