I Have Alzheimer’s or Another Dementia
Getting family to understand
Thanks for being here! Im new to the message board. I have frontal lobe syndrome.
My sister told me the other day she was sure I have ADHD because she's a teacher and has a lot of experience with that. She was the first one of my family that I told. I thought I had been clear about the MRIs, the lab work, the many visits to the neurologist etc.
I explained again but it was pretty hurtful and i feel incredibly alone.
Thanks so much for sharing your strength and hope.
I forgot I signed up so this was like Christmas in September!
I think I found my sense of humor...
You don't know how much it means
hi, my cousin who is a nurse says its pseudo dementia pet scan shows dementia I wish it was all in my head as I am struggling alone
I am alone, too, Cathyde. It is very difficult. Beware, you are vulnerable and people will try to take advantage.
