The article descriptions are very good, I remember ( ) my Dad quit speaking much and part of it was because my Mother was virtually deaf and probably did not respond to him. He began a search for a "safer place to live" and filled a bedroom in their condo with building brochures for different communities.

He was sending checks to every charity that came in the mail and was not aware of people taking advantage of him.

I have had symptoms since early 90's, I have a photo of him, me and one of my dogs and all 3 of us had dementia and no one knew. I was told "probable MS" back then because of symptoms and incredible fatigue.

Women esp are diagnosed with depression, anxiety or another mood or personality disorder. The medications they gave me for bi-polar caused me to have tardive dyskensia, my tongue never stops moving, I guess it was "Late Onset Bi-polar" I mean who gets bipolar over 50?

thanks for sharing!
