About

My name is Jen.  My husband, Keith, was diagnosed with Frontaltemporal Degeneration, a rare form of early onset dementia, in 2019, but we had been struggling to discover what was wrong for over 5 years before that.  His personality and behavior changes caused a lot of problems in our family, but I knew in my heart that he was sick and refused to give up until someone could tell me what was happening.  I’m hoping to share some stories from our daily life that show what living with dementia is like, especially in a family setting.

We have 7 children, currently aged 25-10, and my husband is still living at home.

    I am finding your blog very helpful. I always knew something was wrong with my husband, but it wasn’t until after his death I finally discovered it was FTD. I read a lot of forums as a way to understand just what happened to our lives. I think you write exceptionally well, and I very much appreciate the information you relate in the context of your personal experience. Blessings on the upcoming festivities, and I hope you keep up the good work.

      Aw! Thanks so much!! I’m so sorry about your husband. It’s a terrible disease that takes so much from us. I hope you’ve been able to find healing and peace. ❤
