    Hello Vaso and welcome to Talking Point. So sorry that your husband has dementia and you are finding it hard to come to terms with the diagnosis. I think we have all felt the same and taken varying lengths of time to get back on track.

    You will find lots of support and advice and friendship on here from all the members. They may be where you are right now and have empathy by the bucket load or further along the line and can help you along as and when you need the support.

    So please make use of the forum and look forward to seeing you posting very soon.

    Hello Vaso and a warm welcome from me, too :)

    This diagnosis is so difficult to cope with, and as jaymor says, we're all somewhere along the road. I hope you get the support you need, from here and elsewhere.

    Looking forward to seeing you posting (reading can be good, too).

    Lindy :) xx

    It`s so sad. I used to cry a lot too. It doesn`t make anything better other than release pent up emotions.
