My Mom was diagnosed with Late Onset Huntington’s Disease (let’s just call it HD) in July of 2017. It is a terrible disease.
For those who are unfamiliar with this rare ailment, broken-down, it is simply the degeneration of cells in the brain and the body. A brain disorder that causes uncontrolled movements, emotional problems, and loss of cognition. I’ve been calling it a cross between Parkinson’s and Dementia. That’s the easiest explanation that most everyone understands. It just plain sucks.
