    It's life Jim - but not as we know it!

    Well I’m absolutely disgusted! That’s terrible that a chemist wouldn’t make an exception for someone with Dementia. I was only thinking today that I would start having OH meds delivered because it’s a struggle to get him there, but probably I’ll get the same answer. Well done to the lady from...

    christmas

    Oh that made me feel so sad and yet happy at the same time somehow.......Must be the ghost of Christmas past coming out to torment us! Or maybe it’s the Baileys cream that was supposed to be for Christmas Day. Anyway I’m sure your Mum will be thrilled to see her treasured combs again and the...

    Many thanks to you all

I was feeling so down and helpless and the lovely people on here showed me the way! I wish everyone a peaceful and stress free (as possible)Christmas and New Year.xxx

    And so it goes on...

    Gosh that must have so frightening for you, worrying about him out there on his own at that time!:eek: It’s so difficult not to feel resentful in situations like that. I hate having to say I can’t help people out now, we just have to hope that they understand but I’m not sure they really do...

    Oh how I feel your pain! Today I dragged myself out of bed just wishing it was time to get back in. What kind of a life is that, when that’s all you’ve got to look forward too! There’s so much needs doing to the house, blocked gutter, porch roof leaking, broken fence. His sister died a few...

    Should I get a dog!

    My OH loves our dog to bits, he’s much nicer to her than he is to me sometimes! She’s a rescue dog that we got 5 years ago and she’s lovely, but if I’d known then what was to come, I definitely wouldn’t have got a dog! At 4 this morning he woke up ranting about something, ( not sure what) and...

    I need someone to talk to

    You ramble as much as you want, everyone on here knows the need to have a good ramble! It keeps us saneo_O Everything you’ve said is exactly the same here, but I can see how much more difficult it must be for you. Your marriage is still in tact (no hope left for ours!) and it must be putting a...

    I need someone to talk to

    It’s terrible isn’t it, my OH went through a phase like this soon after he was diagnosed, but then it passed and he became very childlike although he still didn’t want me to go out. I don’t know what’s happened now but the aggression is back. It sounds like there’s no easy answer, but it’s very...

    I need someone to talk to

    Oh dear, I was pinning my hopes on something like that easing his anxiety and so giving me a bit more freedom:( The other thing im worried about , is that although he’ll kick up a massive fuss about going to the doctors, of course when we get there he’ll be all csweetness and light, and she’ll...

    I need someone to talk to

    Oh I do sympathise with you because my OH is exactly the same. It’s soul destroying isn’t it, the last time I went out was 18 months ago to my mothers 90th birthday party, even though I’d done most of the organising,I only stayed a couple of hours because I knew he’d be annoyed when I got...

    'Half of women will be carers by the age of 46'

    Well of course your brother and sister are right, because I’m sure that they both do their fair share of helping you out, so obviously know exactly what is involved in being a carer! Oooh my nose is getting longer, I wonder why that is!:D x
