Your among friends

Hi jackanory

I’m pleased that you found us all on Talking Point so you’re among good friends who have an understanding of how you must be feeling right now, but please excuse me if I say that from the way you have written it sounds as though your still in the state of shock that we all go through when first diagnosed and like all of us your quiet naturally feeling a bit scared but once your Aricept kicks in I’m sure like myself you will start to feel some benefit from the medication... so please keep writing on Talking Point
Best wishes
Barry
