Re: Alzheimers spouse
Hey there Dancyn
My wife was 52 when she was diagnosed with Pick's Dementia 4 years ago. Only 4 years, but it seems like a lifetime ago. She passed away just over 2 years ago. Unlike Alz, Pick's is a frontotemporal lobe dementia that progresses rapidly, so I don't have the exact situation that you do, but I have a lifetime (it seems) of caregiving experience. So I'll be glad to give any input that I can.
It seems like an overwhelming situation, I'm sure. But you WILL get through it. And if you are like me, you will forget so much of the stressful, painful things that you are / will be dealing with.
Please keep posting... you will get a wealth of support and input from these wonderful folks. They were a lifeline for me.
I'll keep checking back on you. Kenny
