Second visit to this site - I am Norman's wife/carer - he has Alzheimers - Most days are good as we keep busy - plus a new anti depressent pill is helping to keep calmer -

Hello Chica

I`m glad to hear your husband`s new antidepressant is helping. It makes such a difference if the medication can be effective.
I hope you have many more good and calm days.
Love xx

Hello,

My husband (55) has been on anti-depressants for awhile now and I think they have really made a difference to his moods.

Hi - so pleased to have some feedback - I shouldnt have spoken so soon - not long after writing that things were OK he had a terrible day - went to play golf and after a few holes he lost his temper when his ball went in a pond (he used to be a very good golfer ) said he didnt want to play ever again and wouldnt even stop for a coffee - we went home and he went on all afternoon about wanting to die and its my fault he has no friends as I have told them all about his problem and how he knew I would be happy when he died - I try to calmly point out that I spend 24/7 trying to make things nice for him but I did burst into tears ....
To-day and yesterday he has been fine.... Am taking him to Spain next week so hope a change of venue for a week will be good for him.... Thank you all for your interest

Have a good holiday Chica.:)

I know just what it`s like to be blamed for everything even though , as you say, you spend your life 24/7 trying to make things better.

Love xx
