Post FTD - good article in today's LA Times
This is a terrific article in today's Los Angeles Times about a family challenged by FTD (frontotemporal dementia), which used to be called Pick's Disease. In our local support group, we've had two people with a clinical diagnosis of PSP who were diagnosed with FTD (Pick's Disease) upon brain autopsy. Also, one person in our local support group was clinically diagnosed with DLB but ended up with a different type of frontotemporal dementia on brain autopsy.

Right, the URL is in my post. Did it not work for you?

It did not work for me either but I did read the [heart rending] story. So many stories out there.

Perhaps not all browsers add "www"? I'll modify the original post.
