Juli has CADASIL. Cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarct and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL) is “the most common hereditary subcortical vascular dementia” (per Medscape).
By my PWD friend Juli Star-Alexander on Mar 15, 2016:
I knew things were not well with me because even though nothing had changed in life,
my mood was very dark,
my dysarthria hands
and my balance were way off,
I could not hold a thought for very long.
Today I have had my typical emotional hang-over
which lasts about 4 days
while my inflamed brain tries to clean up
my micro-bleed stroke.
Strokes to the emotional center of my brain
do not produce the aura, numbness and loss of verbal fluency or tingling either.
No fun, this disease.
