Rebekah Wilson will join Sharon Hall to discuss the hypers--a caree's hyper sexuality, orality, OCD, or as Sharon calls them, the "icky parts" of caring for a family member with FTD. Sharon cares for her husband, diagnosed with FTD in the fall of 2015, and moderates our weekly FTD chat on CareGiving.com. You can call into the live 30-minute show with your questions or email them to ftdpodcastquestions@yahoo.com prior to the show.

This podcast recording also will be available on CareGiving.com's website after the show. CareGiving.com hosts a chat for those who care for a family member with FTD every Monday at 7 p.m. ET (6 p.m. CT, 5 p.m. MT, 4 p.m. PT).
