Though I like to try ignore the fact that my sidekick FTD is hanging out, FTD unfortunately hasn't been ignoring me. I've been finding it more difficult to function.
As many of you know, I don't have nor want a caregiver. The closest thing I have to a caregiver is AFTD, particularly Sharon Denny. AFTD and Sharon are there for me 7 days a week.
AFTD is not only the worlds leading resource for accurate information on FTD, but there staff goes way out of there way for each person that contacts them. There more than just a nonprofit, there a source of comfort and backbone to many.
People write to me concerned of my future plans for long term care. There's not a lot of planning that can be done when your on public assistance and 63 cents a day in food stamps. I am comforted to know I have AFTD and NYC Riverstone (Memory Club) to help me in that transition.
