Hello ,everyone, It's now 10.30 pm and am writing for the first time on the forum. Caring for my husband who was diagnosed three years ago with vascular dementia is something that we'd never envisaged.( It can't happen to us !) He also has late stage diabetes,little mobility,a pacemaker and double incontinence. I was coping ( I thought !) until a week ago when the enormity of the situation and his deteriorating abilities hit me with such a force they I wanted just to curl up and sleep forever..... Feeling more able to cope this week,and aware that this must happen to so many others out there. Savouring the precious hour before bed for a night of interrupted sleep.Glad to meet you all.
