    but wouldnt it bother you to know that you would lead such a life in the end, although its not painfull to you, but what about the ppl around you?

    i think id rather either know or not know for deffinate, rather than knowing theres a 50% chance ill get it (well a rarer form of it) and it will kill me before im 60 but i will never actually know if im gonna getit until ive got it (does that make ne sense at all?! lol). not nice
    if i had the choice, id rather not know at all. ignorance is bliss

    I'd prefer to know, then I'll definately get round to doing everything I've got planned- but I wouldn't tell anyone unless I really had to- I hate the thought of becoming dependent when I'm older- but luckily thats a long way off...lol

    No bothed about privacy.

    Yes I would want to know. Imagine not living your life to the full, thinking you had 30 odd years ahead of you only to be struck down by early onset Alzheimers in your 40s.

    Ew, a worse example to use is Hodgkinson's Chorea (I think) though. Genetic, dominant gene, sets in in the late 30s and causes unavoidable nervous damage until you die within a few years.

    if you knew you were going to suffer from alzhmeirs later on, whyshould this make you willing to live your life to the fullest? You should do that ne way right ?

    dont think I would wanna know, I may even die before I suffer from it...then itd be unecessary extra worrying on my behalf. This deisease is not curable is it, so maybe that too would deter me from knowing my fate.
