Hi everyone; hope you are all keeping cool out there.
A couple who were my teachers many years ago and became friends through local politics are having a dreadful time as the wife has developed Altzheimer’s and there have been many letters of support in the local newspaper, The husband has ‘come out’ about some very personal details of his wife’s behaviour to highten awareness of this truly devestating disease.
At the end of the article it listed things to look out for and I realised that it sounds like me.
I was going to write to the local paper about this but I don’t want to take away some of the publicity from my friends, (things aren’t always about MS)!
Ok I am in my late 50s and am constantly being told ‘it’s your age’ and some of it probably is but have decided to mention this to my MS nurse when I see him next week as I’m tired of being fobbed off with ‘it could be your age’. I am also aware that with the amount of people being dx with this disease I could be developing it myself.
I find using the telephone and speaking to people very difficult these days, then I have done for a very long time. Thank God for this computer; which gives me time to think about what I want to say.
