Thank you all very much. I don't think I can continue to mind Tim any longer. Getting no sleep. He is up and down from bed. Talking to himself and walking...walking...First of all... BREATH.
Now. Tell us what's up. Loads of us here to listen.
Thank you. Sister only calls odd time with her husband whenever it suits and then follows me around asking questions? How is he apart from his Alzh?? None of his family who live nearby even call to our house just the nosey sister and my patience is running out with her.So sorry Aisling xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx I can't imagine how stressed you must be xxxxxxxxxxxx
I think that your trip to the doc is a really good idea - hopefully he will help with some meds which will bring this situation down a few notches and allow you some breathing space.
Perhaps respite for a couple of weeks would be a good option? Just a thought - or perhaps sister would like to come and stay to give you a break but if she is anything like my lot that won't be an option - very nasty words come to mind xxxxxxxxxxxx
Thinking of youx
I finally cracked 3 weeks ago today, here's a link to the threadThank you all very much. I don't think I can continue to mind Tim any longer. Getting no sleep. He is up and down from bed. Talking to himself and walking...walking...
Have moped up bathroom many times since 8oclock. Am under duvet typing. He resists any help I try to give him and if that sister of his gets in my face asking questions I won't be responsible for my actions. He is now walking round bed looking for sum thing. I have no idea.
Am taking him to doctor tomorrow if I have the energy. Aisling
Thank you am going to tell doctor whole story tomorrow.I finally cracked 3 weeks ago today, here's a link to the thread
I went to visit today (as I do every day) and much though I hate to admit it we're both in a better place than we were before. How a "better place" can be defined as my wife being sectioned in a secure hospital and me rattling round the house with nothing to do but drink too much could be called a better place I don't know, but we are both a better off, could you make a call and ask for help like I did?
Do go to the doctor. And if for any reason you can't take him then ring and ask for a phone consultation and tell the doc EVERYTHING that has been happening and ask for help.
Disregard SIL. If she is not there 24/7 then she has no idea. Maybe you using your phone to film the difficult times would give her some concept of what you are having to deal with but I understand if you'd rather not do that.
Don't come away with empty promises of help that doesn't exist, a promise of future, appointments to some clinic or a pile of leaflet. Make things change right there and right then. Refuse to take him home if you have to but do not let them fob you off with some old guff. You sound like you're too close the edge and so it's time to step back, don't just tell the doctor his story tell him yours too They have to help both of you not just him, pushing it back to you isn't an option.Thank you am going to tell doctor whole story tomorrow.
