Bless your heart Denton.
That had to be really hard. My dad has AD, and while he is occassionally verbally abusive, he has never acted out physically.
I too worry about the possibility of one day succombing to this disease as I also have some membery problems. The best thing I saw in your post is that the incidents of AD seemed to come from only one side of your family, which would give hope that you had AD free genes from the other side.
