I wanted to post a very quick note today to let you all know that there has been a recent diagnosis in the family of dementia.
I will post more in the coming days (and no doubt weeks and months) about the situation.
We have been waiting a long time for the diagnosis and now what we suspected is here it is more difficult than we had assumed. Tragically the person we love is being slowly taken from us and there are no drugs or treatments that can even slow it such is the rare form of the condition.
Reading today what happens in the course of the next few years is heartbreaking and frankly I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. It makes it so much worse that the person is not only close to me but also that they are a genuinely lovely person who has never harmed anyone in their life.
