When got my 4/4 result from Promethease (a year ago 23andMe did not provide an ApoE4 report), I was completely unprepared. Like you, my paternal grandmother had AD (died from it after many years of significant dementia), as well as some other family members. I was not surprised to see that I was at risk, but I knew nothing about ApoE and was blindsided by the fact that I inherited risk from both sides, as well as devastated by the degree of risk (The statistics Promethease reports are a bit more terrifying than those on the 23andMe report).tlovesa wrote: A few weeks ago I felt nothing but despair and isolation.
I could have written this line. Exactly. This entire process is a journey with many chapters. Sixteen months later, I can say that it definitely gets easier. When other things in my life are not going well, I am more likely to dwell on it, but it no longer consumes every waking thought.tlovesa wrote:For the first few days I didn't quite absorb it.
