Hello @MatthewB

Dont worry about the spelling, we can understand what you have written

The paper is just saying that you have dementia. The type of dementia is vascular dementia, but you do not need worry about that.

You are at the moderate stage, so you are not going to die yet!

It is also saying that you are anxious. Perhaps anti-anxiety medication might help? You might be taking them already, though, so I would ask your wife about it.

Hello @MatthewB

It is always good to hear from you. I’m so pleased you find this forum helpful.

@canary has given you good advice.

My mum also has vascular dementia. She is further along than you, but still is able to have a good time and enjoy being with her family and being out in the countryside,

Take care

Hello @MatthewB . Yes it is good to hear from you, and please never worry about spelling. Mine is never brilliant!

As others have said, moderate stage dementia - your'e not going to die yet, you will have time , as you put it, to sort and figure things out with your family.

Take care and all the best to you and your family

Hello @MatthewB I’m really pleased you still feel there is support here for you.

I’m not surprised you are anxious. All I can advise is you discuss your worries with your wife and definitely with your doctor. The doctor will know if your anxiety can be eased with medication and the right medication will help you make the best of your life in spite of your difficulties

Never apologise for your spelling. The most important thing is you are willing to share your worries and allow us to offer support

Dyslexia just means difficulty with reading and/or writing - its a medical word.
Yes, young children can get it and that is usually where we hear the word, but adults can also get it from a stroke, or head injury, or dementia

I'm sorry you are going through this. Can your spouse go with you for testing? She can maybe get you there and get you admitted by helping with paperwork. Its good that you are seeking help because you may get some answers and help with medication or care for you and your spouse.

Matthew its so hard to hear this I know, I was with my brother when he was told he was being medically retired by his Company at just 58 years old. He was a senior archaeologist the only job he'd ever had. We asked about part time work or even volunteering but I think the Health and Safety is just too great. Once he had accepted it all he admitted it was nice to be stress free from work and driving. Take care.
