Posterior Cortical Atrophy Presentation
OR How to Drive your Neurologist Nuts
By Cecil F. Ristow III; May 2015
In speaking with my future neurologist, I am trying to relate my experiences with PCA,
as my present neurologists are stumped.
This may not be a fair assumption.
It is, however, accurate.
There is no cure.
There is hope for a better life.

Benson’s Syndrome, doesn’t even sound like a disease, hard to find, harder to believe. I
feel more like a PCA Embarassador. To look and feel quite normal and yet be so
damned messed up! What can be done? Nothing. Who can I see ? Nobody. So, I
explore things that make me feel better. (not Heroin) and doing things
differently. I have to be patient with myslef and LeAnna has to be patient with
me. My feeling is one of embarassment, withdrawal and the realization thatt I’m
only “gettng” 50% of what is going on around me. How do I represent that? Our
group has taken this into the light of day. So improtant. So very healing in
itself for loved ones and for those of us afflicted. We all share an esteemed
Ambassadorship for PCA around this small-er world. We are close. Getting
closer and, well, maybe just not there yet but ours is a force of spirit which
will not be denied.
