Hello fellow compatriots! My husband was diagnosed in 2013 officially, though for 3 years before that there were worrying issues! (Ken was a Hire Driver for private hires -walking groups that were taken by bus to remote areas of Scotland for a day's walking. Latterly in his career he couldn't remember well-known routes and was checking out maps. Verbally he did not remember instructions but was OK with a written manifest.) Since then it has been downhill (some plateaus) continuously, as many of you have experienced. I have been reading with interest and sympathy many "blogs". (Also don't understand some of the technological terms; I use it as similar to a ship's log; ie recording what's happening at any one time; thinking of the 'b' as 'biographical'.) Finding it quite difficult to enter the world of cyberspace with so many different rules and terminology for each site - this is I believe is what is called a 'thread'. Hopefully I can now interact with the site; many times I have written screeds and at final point it DOESNT GO and is wiped off !! (At which point I give up as hubby is pacing up n down saying "up shops" continually!) Ken has Separation Anxiety from myself,the car and "home"! I was given a week's Respite from Monday,3rd to 9th August, but only got 3 hours Monday as I had to fetch him home because THEY couldn't cope! Such is life!!
