Rebekah Wilson joined 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.
