Morning all My husband was diagnosed with AD a few short days ago, at the tender age of 47. We think it's been coming on for about 5 years, but the consultants have spent a lot of time focusing on depression. This is because he lost job after job to redundancy and performance issues. It has been soul-destroying watching him go through it. Now that we finally have the diagnosis and he has accepted that he can't do the same job (we are not ruling out some form of work later), he is happier than I've seen him in years. Stress levels are down, his sense of humour and wit have returned, and I have, for now, got back the man I fell in love with. He's had a wonderful fortnight watching the tennis and going to the gym. At the moment, his main symptoms are just memory loss, and humour sees us through this, together with a daily notebook system. We may have difficult times ahead, but for now, we're going to write a Bucket List (but we need a better name), and just live our socks off every day! This forum is amazing, by the way!
