Thanks for the friend invite! 🙂 Very discouraged with doctors who refuse to give my husband a diagnosis. He just turned 63, and has serious short term memory loss. He is no longer able to drive (has no idea where he is) and I recently had to stop him from cooking soup! He forgets and is forever setting off smoke alarms. He is agitated most days, calls me names, blames me for everything. My self-esteem is almost gone. 🙁 Sometimes it seems like he is just faking, but most of the time, his memory problems are unmistakeable. His memory problems started 10 years ago. He has had extensive testing done, but not recently, due to not having any medical insurance. He was fired from his job in 2008 for being to forgetful. Just not sure how much longer I can deal with him. Does it matter if it’s dementia or AD? I am aware that dementia is the leading cause of AD. He is not on any medication because no one will give him a diagnosis! I wish the Alzheimers Assoc. gave free evaluations!!
I have Fibromyalgia, and other types of chronic pain. I am 56 years old. I also have untreated hypothyroidism. It was under control till we lost our insurance. I have a difficulty sleeping, and am just a wreck! I’ve gained a lot of weight due to the thyroid issue.
I am also an RMA, and a CNA. I am not able to work anymore either. @leoreynaverin
