- Learn about ALS
Hi to all. I am in the process of being diagnosed with a possible motor neuron disease and my doctor from what I have been explaining to him thinks I have FTD. My question is does anyone have any experience wiht this and antidepressants. I would like to take something for my depression but I am just not sure if normal antidepressants would work considering the brain is being effected. Does anyone know if there are drugs to help with dementia. I notice I forget things and small tasks around the house are difficult. Things like unloading the dishwasher, it's not just automatic, I have to think okay where does this go, it's really frustrating. I have also noticed I don't want to leave the house anymore, this is wierd for me I never used to be in the house. I used to be a social butterfly, now social situations scare me. It's a hard feelig to describe this ftd but I'm just not aware of my surroundings like I used to be. I was always a neat freak, now my house beomes a disaster and I don't even notice it. I hate this more than anything that's happening to my body. Does anyone know does the ftd just keeep progressing with the mnd or can it stop at a certain point?
