I am living with dementia since 57 (I am 63 now) and found attending seminars is a positive way to learn how to live with dementia. I will not take anymore psychology test; all they prove is I am getting worse. I hate when you tell a doctor of a new problem the doctor tells yes we knew you would do that.
Get a good counselor since doctors don’t help with life changes or living. You also need a person to be your voice; I can not speak well anymore this has taken me 30 minutes to write. I now in testing for ALS and when you can’t speak well it is awful to deal with all the medical test doctors, non-dementia doctors, find it difficult to test you for other medical problems. Always live your life and find good coping skills to solve daily living problems and take lots of pictures now as they will be your memories.

Thanks for your viewpoint and sorry for your diagnosis. I am glad that you have a plan – to live life. I am still not sure this is were I am at. Hopefully not. But if I am, I am seeing the world. Covid or not.
