My wife told me before we married there was a history of women

Customer Question

My wife told me before we married there was a history of women in her family going strange in middle age. A mental health problem. Her mother developed what was diagnosed as alzheimers in middle / late middle age. She also became doubly incontinent and later lost the use / control of one leg. She had been a fit normal weight person. My wife at age 53 approximately had problems doing her previously manageable adminastrative job. She suffered memory loss, long term memories, and the lost the ability to remember phone numbers which she used to remember easily. She lost weight, and developed raynaud's disease. She became aggressive and violent, and lost her pleasant character. She developed problems with head bobbing when sat down resting. Also rapid eye movement when she could not immediately answer a question, which happened frequently. Her appetite for sex stopped abruptly. Her appearance changed dramatically her face becoming thinner, grey and lined. She once accused me of hitting her when I brushed my hand above her head. I had not touched her.She and her family come from Finland. She was approximately 5' 4" tall. was medium build, and is now slightly shorter and skinny. She was physically fit, and still is. She is now 63. She has to some extent recovered but still has memory loss and invented memories. Her pleasant character has slowly returned over approximately 3 years. She speaks 2 languages.
