I am wondering why my limbic system does not function correctly. I seem to have no feelings and don t know what happened to them. I do not feel anything at weddings, funerals, sad movies, fear,hurt feelings, sorrow for others, etc. I feel empty and dead inside because I do not exhibit emotions. I have recently been diagnosed with early fronto temporal dementia and wonder if this could have anything to do with it. I am 69 years old and my father had Alzheimers before he died. Is this familial or hereditary?

I am 63 yr old female. My father had alzheimers and dementia and died at 83 not knowing anyone and living in and out of the past. I have experienced sudden outbursts of anger that last a several minutes and have substituted words that don t fit in a sentence. I am an educated woman and my fear is that I am developing the same signs my dad started showing in his 60 s. How do I know and what should I do?
