I Have Alzheimer’s or Another Dementia
New Members, please join us on the Younger Onset board
We have two boards for patients. Most of us post on the Younger Onset board, regardless of our ages. It is unfortunate that many members are Younger Onset.
Well, as many of you know, I'm well past the Early Onset age. Those diagnosed at a younger than normal age make up on a small proportion of those living with the disease. And those folks have usually had a harder than normal in getting diagnosed. Doctors are too much in denial that such a thing is possible and so time is lost.
And currently this board is not used much but it is still checked. So, post wherever you wish.
MY doctors are thinking early onsite dementia. I'm only 57. Really scared. Had the MRI now ready for test
Wecome to our world.
We're so glad you found us.
From your library, do ask for a copy of Doraiswamy and Gwyther of Duke University: The Alzheimer's Action Plan. You will learn about all the facets of a good diagnosis. All are important.
EJ. Do get in touch with your local Alz. office. Most have a peer to peer program where you a paired with a person with dementia. Having someone you can talk with any time can be so helpful.
