Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) doesn’t give you many options. It can suck all the air out of a room. But I made a choice, to take some power back and pump oxygen back into our lives, for the sake of our girl’s, Bruce and me. Here are some lessons I’ve learned thus far and have shared over on @thesundaypaper. My hope is this will some bring some light, help and hope to the next family walking through the FTD journey. #linkinbio
