Hello All, First of all thanks for being such good people with such great hearts being a blessing in so many people's lives. I had joined this community a few years back but didn't get the opportunity to write. Now, after reading some of the latest posts, I am urged to share my side of the story and am sure to get a lot of support from all of you.
I'm in India and my mom has been diagnosed with CBD approximately 8 years back. She did have 'falls' from a year or two before that but we couldn't really get it diagnosed. Initially the doctors that it was a psychological problem, followed by Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and what not. Finally and hopefully correctly, she has been diagnosed to be suffering from CBD. As this being a progressively deteriorating disease, it is very heartbreaking to see her every day enduring the suffering. I take solace from the fact that she is still with us and I have the opportunity to see and care for her. Also I see so many other women and men her age don't live to see these many years (she is 66 now), I am happy. I strongly believe, with the pace of medical technological advancements, this disease along with many that we don't have cures today, will be curable soon. God Bless us and all of you!
