Having had a reasonable day my husband suddenly started pacing.It has gone on for so long and made worse by the fact that he refused his dinner. In the 54 years we have been together he has never refused to eat. He keeps going out and up to the corner of the road. and then back. and then out again.I have tried to find out what is the problem but he cannot explain himself. At 8.30 in the evening I am now worried that this is going to go on all night. It started at about 4.15.We have had a very upsetting week having had to have our lovely dog Tess put to sleep.After the initial upset on Monday he seemed to have dismissed it from his mind. Today we collected her ashes but he didn't seem worried by it. We had a chap from crossroads here for 2and a half hours he has been four times now, and that seemed to be o.k. He was diognosed 6 years ago and this last few months has deteriorated really quickly. I think this is the longest his has paced and refused to do anything else. I usually manage to distract him after an hour or so. Its the going up the road thats the worse. I can't just leave him longer than a couple of minutes in case he goes further than the corner.I think I will totally loose control oneday. Can anybnody help.
