Younger-Onset AD or Other Dementia
No suicidal, but don't want to live through final stages, what's the point?
Id declined steadily for the last 6 years. I read and hear the caregiver stories and it sounds like a nightmare.
I don't want diapers, to be fed, to be bed ridden it all sounds horrendous and I don't want to go through it, or drag my family through it.
Anyone like minded?
Many thanks for your thoughtful reply.

I am open to every option and every opinion.
Thank you very much for your thoughtful reply.

Dear Michael,Good information!
You are brave to venture over tothe caregiver boards.I did afew times and ended up regretting it afterwards.I have this new thing w/ writing and not spacing words and haven't been posting much. I just wanted o reach out to you and let you know it is not uncommon to feel the way yourfling.
Thank you very much for your kind words. I needed them right when I read them.
I did not know I ventured to caregiver section. Most times I'm bumbling along hit n miss.
Yes, I'm keeping away from there. Too hard to think of all of that stuff in my future.
Thank you for your kind words.
