    Thank you for the recording. I am sorry to miss the live webinar. It was snowing heavily in London and thought it more prudent to make my way home just as the live webinar was about to start. We are not used to heavy snow here!

    I enjoyed the webinar on FTD very much. I believe you said that you were mailing the notes on email. Is this what you had meant? Presumed it was going to be something printable.

    Very well done. Thank you. It’s a long daily struggle and very nice to get more verbal information. Please send me the links. Thank you. It is truly the long and winding road.

    My husband had a traumatic brain injury three years ago. Recently his diagnosis was changed from dementia to”Cognitive impairment”. Some of his symptoms seem to fit The FTD profile. Thanks for any comments or information you can share.

    Could you please send me the links, we have gone a long road to diagnosis. Now we are onto gastric feeds because of other complications. Myesthenia gravis adds to the mix and horrendous headaches from a broken neck. We went through ECT for depression which did not help at all. About 15 years of struggling.

    Wonderful news on FTD. My husband was diagnosed with Early onset dementia in 2010. Looking back I think it was happening much earlier. He was eventually referred to a Neurologist, after sever visits she ordered a Brain Scan and diagnosed with FTD. After a long scary journey, and to keep him safe and everyone else I had to admit him to a nursing home. He is now in the third nursing home, it is about 100 miles away. It is a secure nursing home, which he needs, he is still very street smart and would “escape” if he had a chance. He is safe, I am safe and so is everyone else. We have been married over 50 years, 3 children, 11 grandchildren. He is a good man, great Dad & Papa. The biggest heart ache I have is I am walking g this journey alone. Our children seem to be in denial. I so much need them by my side. I have been attending a support group once a month in the town where I live, this. He has been in the nursing home 31\2 years. This broadcast shared so much more than I have ever gotten at the support group I have been going to, I see now it is too general, this is more on spot with what I am dealing with. Thank you so very much

    Could outside environmental influences impact the the diagnosis and or progression of FTD, such as physical abuse, drug abuse, or a traumatic accident?
