    My wife newly diagnosed

    My wife had her diagnosis of FTD with MND confirmed recently. Would like to talk to someone about this as this is a lot to process. I am in South Wales would appreciate contact details of local support groups

    David1963 sorry this diagnosis now confirmed. Maybe the best people for advice MNDConnect ?

    ​​​​​​​Good luck & take care🙏xx
    Initial diagnosis 7-4-2021 'suspected MND' confirmed by 2nd opinion 4th June 2021 ALS. Began with R foot limp and lots of falls. NIV overnight. Generally weak. Mostly terrified.​​​​​​


      Hi David. Do you have a local hospice? They do get involved in lots of support groups etc. They do more than just the end phase if that makes sense.

      I bet its a huge shock for you x
      Diagnosed May 2021 bulbar onset als.
