hi all new to talking point my karen was diagnosed 3 yrs ago at 45 yrs no lies its tuff as her carer its comforting to know that im not alone some of your threads have given me hope and encourgement to carry on
It is always sad to hear of another dementia sufferer but particularly one as young as Karen. I'm sure that you'll get plenty of advice and support here your definitely not alone sometimes a problem shared is a problem halved. Wishing you strength for what lies ahead. Regards Taffy.
I`m struggling to find something comforting to say to you, but having a wife of 45 with AD is a dreadful position to be in, so nothing would suffice.
I hope you stay with TP and allow the support and friendship that develops between our members to give you some comfort.
Thanks for your kind replies and comments its now 3 years since the original diagnosis I dont know exactly what sort of AD karen has but it seems to be progressing quite rapidly.
The consultant at the National in London just says it is a neuro degenerative condition such as AD and has prescribed Aricept.
They keep asking wether its of benifit to which i can only reply the only way to find out is to stop taking it wich i am not prepared to do. My youngest daughter has gone of to spain with her boyfriend to live and my eldest daughter helps when she can but has trouble coping with some of the day to day events.I think ive covered everything once again thank you all
