“We made a mistake. You are perfectly well. Take these pills, and go on with all the dreams of your life.”
I’m no different. Today I meet with my dementia (FTD/Picks) specialist and all last night I dreamt that good news would be waiting.
But I would take ANY news, anything about this disease. Does the trembling mean I’m at a certain stage? or the verbal decline? And if it does, does it mean it’s progressing or just a ‘come and go’ symptom like so many are? And most of all, how long will I have any quality of life?
That’s the hardest for me, not knowing, no path, no hint of what the day will be like. Will I be up to dressing, or will it be a stay in bed all day kind of day.
Those of you who lost loved ones, please, please tell us what the last year or years was like. We need your stories, you are our hope.
And to all of you, my prayers and my love,
