My mum is 75, but very young and active for her age. She was diagnosed with the early stages about 6 months ago. Me and my mum are really close and i am struggling. Growing up i thought i could deal with most things but not if my parent was diagnosed with Alzheimers. I am scared that the day will come when i go see her and she doesnt know who i am.... At present she just goes over things many times, forgets what she has said. My dad is coping well but he isnt young either at 76. I just thought i would join with people hear to know what i can expect, and would be nice to have support from people who are going through the same thing. I sound real selish saying i am scared, after all its my mum who is going through all this.
