This is my first new thread - so here goes. I've been feeling pretty positive recently. After the month from hell - Brenda had four seizures then went into a terrible psychotic state - our local Younger People with Dementia Team responded magnificently, and with a new medication regime, sorted out the problems and left us both feeling better. I felt it was like I'd got my partner back. But now I'm back to earth with a bump. Of course, I haven't got my partner back. I've got the AD victim who is rapidly losing mental and physical function and is becoming more and more dependent - and who has already forgotten that brief moment when trust and affection came back into our relationship after a month of fear and disorientation. I've read it many times here - this is a cruel disease that only heads in one direction. I was foolish to briefly hope otherwise. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.
