Hi there. I too am new, and I understand the fear. I read your longer breakdown, and being so new myself, would not know where to start. I will tell you that you are not alone. I am here for you. Others are here for you. 

I hope you will continue to share your journey with us. It took only one day of being here in this forum to lift me a little higher. I know it can do the same for you.

Welcome Canada.  I'm relatively new to this board also(about 2 months).  As you've seen so far, there is a wealth of knowledge and experience here.  I have learned so much and am just now starting to advocate for myself.  I also deal with several mental health issues and am questioning my mix of psych and memory meds.  Currently I am taking Seroquel, Lamictal, Wellbutrin,Trileptal,and Aricept.  I've been on aricept for 2 yrs., seroquel was added about a month ago, and I'm not sure about the rest.  I don't feel that my doctors are taking me very seriously, neuro included.  I will be looking for a new, hopefully more qualified neuro as soon as my new insurance kicks in.  I don't 't feel that I have been properly tested yet, just'seems  like alz just live with it.  But thanks to the well informed people here I realize that there is much more that can be evaluated.

Sorry for the reasons you are here but am so glad you found us.  I know we're in for a bumpy ride but I'm willing to keep trying as long as I have support and access to knowledge about this horrible disease .
