My OH with Alzheimer's was eventually admitted to hospital under section 2 at end of January, as I was finding it impossible to cope. I was suffering acute sciatica at the time which I feel contributed to it. He has now been sectioned under section 3 as hospital are still trying to 'cure' his challenging behaviour. Today when I visited he was again asleep, he has got swollen legs and feet (didn't have these when he went in) and when my friend and I tried to wake him and help him sit up he was holding his head and almost crying out with pain when we tried to move him. He had been found on the floor at 2am a few days previously though hadn't hurt himself and he seems to be turning his nights into days and vice versa. Eventually he did sit up, shuffled off to the toilet, and then sat and had coffee and a Mars bar with us. Hardly any conversation, eye contact etc. I feel now that I betrayed him and seeing him like he is it must seem to him to be his worst nightmare come true. Friends and family say I did the right thing but sitting at home alone it feels that I let him go too easily and should have been stronger. How have others coped with this?
