After going to the author's 'blog' and reading his whole statement, I think he is being somewhat 'playful'...for lack of a better word, when he stated he only wants to hear from 'very high experts in brain chemistry'. Keeping it 'light' as he puts it. He says at least twice that he's not dead or it's not over yet.

I remember when I was first diagnosed with FTD this year & got all the sad looks, offers of condolences, etc. It was very touching, but also very overwhelming. I just wanted to be 'normal' again. I had to go off line for awhile. Of course, we all know that it is great to have the connection with others with early onset dementia, but I think he'll have to come to terms with the diagnosis first.
