Despair

Hold on Tess, we are sending you lots of love .

My Blog

my heart is breaking

my eyes are full of tears

my husband of more than 60 years

cannot remember he is married to me

Looking through photos of family

he is not able to name anyone

looking at holiday pictures he knows not where we were

time of day seems to mean nothing to him

morning or evening are all the same

he rearranges clothes in the drawers

and changes his trousers several times

there seems to be no rhyme or reason

all is muddle and confusion

and I am going crazy too!

half an hour ago he was getting ready for bed

now he has rushed out to the garden

there is something that needs trimming

and it must be done

nothing will persuade him it is not the time for gardening

I cannot do this anymore……………………………..

Tomorrow he will be interviewed by a social worker

who knows what…

    Have read and sent support by proxy. I hope things can be worked out sooner rather than later, though it is going to be so difficult. ❤

        I was too far away to help my sister with my Mum, and would have been over the moon had Mum decided to live with us. There were two of us and we could have shared the load, but it would have been selfish to force the issue as family and Mum’s friends were all there (and I know none would have visited), plus she had good health care. As you know, my sister and I don’t get on and there is a lot of hostility towards me, so I’ve backed off.
        You just feel so damn helpless to this bastard of a disease that strips away at someone you love and turns them into a complete stranger.

    Thanks for sharing this post. It is so hard to watch someone you love fall into this disease.

    “Like” is hardly appropriate here. Just to know I was here and read.
