In December of 2013 I was told I have FTD and probably had 2 years of quality life left


For a short time it was thought I had ALS too. Turned out I don't have ALS. As you can tell, I still have some quality left in me.

Here is the link to the story I used to explain FTD: https://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/06/health/a-rare-form-of-dementia-tests-a-vow-of-for-better-for-worse.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all

Each patient advances at their own rate. For me, so far so good.

I'm on Trazadone to slow the advance of FTD. Studies in Great Britain show that Trazadone for some reason does help with that.

I'm still able to get around and communicate. I need to lose a few pounds since I'm pre-diabetic.

I have helped raised over 1.5 million dollars for Biden-Harris: https://www.democraticunderground.com/100214084917

Anyway I get asked from time to time how I'm doing. For now I'm doing fine.

Regards,

OS
