And have you tried to "google" dementia early-onset? Let me just say there are no easily found support groups or resources for a woman diagnosed with dementia in her mid 40's.
but life goes on... I will live the days I have. I will try, like hell, to not let my confusion and personality changes limit my life.
- Brain Tumor
I've been fairly stable the last few months, no major declines and I've even regained the ability to recall the day and organize the big re-current activities of most days. I still struggle with order and making decisions. It's called executive functioning. That would be like when I drove all over decided where to go get milk for Max's bowl of cereal. And Ginger says she and one of my closest friends and confidants both have noticed a personality change for the last 7 months. Joy. There's not a lot of information about these diseases in someone my age. Apparently I'm supposed to be in my late 50's and have a history of hypertension.
So I'm waiting again, for more bills and more tests and yet another appointment. I hope they find nothing!
