Good day to anyone who reads this .. Unsure how site works yet as have decided to join this forum after reading posts over the last few weeks. I think I'm going to need support in the next few weeks/months/years?? with supporting my mum who has Alzheimers. She was diagnosed about 3 yrs ago but we have vaguely called it dementia but was told this week it is AD. Her symptoms have become worse in the past 2 months and we (my 2 sisters and I) think she needs 24 hr care so starting the long process. I have also realised that I have/am suffering from anticipatory grief big time! Soooo, thought this site may help sometimes. Sorry to sound so selfish. I want to extend best wishes to all on this site who are dealing in whatever way with this awful illness. I hope I may offer words of comfort and receive some occasionally. I'm going to remain positive. Thanks for reading!
