So i just found out i most likely have ftd. My symptoms have been misdiagnosed for depression and bipolar disorder for so long. Even though I've repeatedly expressed my concerns that I'm having memory problems. No one's listened. Until a ct scan revealed atrophy but then was taken back by another radiologist who thought it was normal. But my progressive decline in cognitive skills and having to readjust and relearn at every plateu can't be explained by anything else other than dementia. Will be going for an MRI and Spect scan soon. Anyone else around my age with dementia? (Unlikely i know but worth a shot)
