Hallo, My husband has had Alzheimers for 4yrs. Regretably we put him into a care home three days ago as it was getting increasingly difficult for me to care for him. People now expect me to start living again but I feel so lost and alone. I knew it had to happen and I knew it would'nt be easy but I didn't know it would be quite this bad. It feels like a bereavement and I cry for him but of course I'm crying for the man he was. He doesn't know I'm his wife, have been for fifty one years. Things have been getting me down and my kids said I couldn't do it any longer. They think I am going to feel better overnight but I know I wont. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Just wanted someone to talk to. B.
