My husband has had dementia for 4 years and is steadily getting worse. He thinks he is still ok but I am now getting very stressed as it is like looking after a child. I am having to think for him and of course he doesn't remember anything I tell him. My dog died two weeks ago and it seems to have had a bad effect on me. She was always here to talk to and would always come up to me to have a fuss made of her. I am feeling her loss more as it seems to have brought the situation with my husband more to the surface. I am crying every day but can't get to see my GP as they are only taking online consultations. I am at a loss as to how to deal with this situation and feel myself getting lower each day.
