Another curve!

My Wife has a very strong family tie to Alzheimer's and was exposed, second hand, to the same chemicals that caused my Lewy Body Dementia.   Recently she has exhibited many symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease and she is now waiting for an appointment with the Neurologist I see here in Pensacola.   This is a time I remember very well!  The period of time when you first KNOW you have some sort of Cognitive issues but still do not have a diagnosis.  You are very tense and hyper attentive to everything different that you experience.   You are worried and apprehensive as to what you have, if anything!

I can only be supportive at this time.  My knowledge about different dementias is worthless.  All that matters to my Wife, the patient, is what the Neurologist tells her, as it should be.

So, we wait and pray.

  1. Don, so sorry to read this, but tell Linda that a LBD'er from NC is rooting for her. And Don, I can't imagine what all this is doing to your well-being, but I admire your ability to put yourself aside and focus on your wife. Please keep us posted. Bill.

  2. I'm so sorry that you both have to go through this. I'm dealing with a grandmother who has Alzheimer's and am trying to learn more about this disease myself. If possible, I would be interested in interviewing you on your personal experience and knowledge. Let me know what you think.
