Not sure how to take it....I've been more than a little stunned. The diagnosis from my new psychiatrist is early onset dementia from meningitis/encephalitis. Luckily the course of dementia has stopped because the disease was treated. I'm not sure I want the diagnosis in my chart ~ cannot explain why. It was suggested that I get a service dog - I believe that may be too costly right now. I'll be meeting with neuropsychologist doctor in a couple of weeks to go further into my results & possible rehab options. Fifteen minutes at a time, ladies....fifteen minutes at a time. My new motto!
