但在岁 52 she has now been diagnosed with early-onset dementia and we are both devastated.

About two years ago, she started losing things and finding it hard to remember directions. 自那时候起, there’s been a steady decline.

我是 53 and thought we had decades ahead of us.

All our dreams of retiring and going travelling are destroyed.

I face a future as a carer and she feels like she has no future.
