HD is so variable isn't it ! My father has it - recently diagnosed but in reality we don't know at which point he started showing signs really ! He's 67 . I am going through genetic counseling at Manchester - working toward testing . I really love HD web site because of all the info but most importantly - the support . Any one who has HD in the family are facing enormous challenges and all families and individuals are unique ! Take care , CG x

Hi Michelle
Sorry to be welcoming you and hope we can help you.
While there are recognised symptoms of HD each suffer exhibits their own pattern.
Generally things go quite slowly, not sure if this is good or bad.
