I do not know about the different types of dementia and wonder if there is enough discussion on boards about them.

Found the above CHANNEL on youtube with loads of free videos. Hope this is of value to those who have FTD....

love and courage

Woman described life with FTD and how she uses her spiritual practice to help cope.

I learned some things from her description of FTD as "ALZ on steroids".

Talk about Love and Courage!

There is also a link at bottom of page for more info on FTD.

i have not been on boards for some time. i have spent last month with dr. appointments, testing and occupational therapy. plus i find it harder to post and have make sense. must constantly edit before posting.

i have the behavioral variant of FTD, being diagnosed in 2008 (or 2007, I can't remember). I am glad to go to these links to view videos. thank you so much for posting.

peaceful blessings!
