    Im afraid that I am not going to be of much help to you, but I wanted to send you virtual empathy.
    My mum has Az, which is why I joined here, but only recently the doctors have said that they think my husband has frontotemporal dementia. It has come as a shock to me too. I had not considered a diagnosis of dementia in my husbands case as he is so different from mum.

    Loss of inhibitions

    My wife had turns when she would talk in a very inappropriate way and keep accusing me of affairs. However the medication has helped greatly so make sure if that problem starts see the docs straight away. Hope that helps at least a bit.
