      My partner was diagnosed recently at the age of 47. The diagnosis came after a year of hell. His drug addiction spiralled to the point where our house was raised by the police and he was arrested and charged for possession with intent to supply.
      His diagnosis came as a light bulb moment. Behaviour that I had thought was down to depression and, stupidly, laziness or a reaction to his father’s almost militant upbringing, suddenly made sense. We are trying now to begin the seemingly impossible task of rebuilding hold life.
      Does anyone living with similar have advice?
