My 68 year old husband has been a bit off. I must begin by mentioning he is an alcoholic, sober for only six months. My problem is distinguishing dementia from an already pickled brain and I am not trying to be nasty. A week ago we had just finished eating dinner, a very hearty dinner. He cleaned the table and cleaned up the entire kitchen. 10 minutes later he asked me if I was ready to eat. I thought he was joking as we were stuffed. I asked him again what he said and he repeated himself. I asked did he not remember that we had just eatenand he said he had not eaten. I went through the whole scenario with him what we ate what we talked about etc. He remembered nothing. He ended up going into bed early and forgot to do a nightly ritual which was letting our dogs back in the house. This might seem minor to some people but he would’ve cut off his right arm before he forgot this. Two days later out of the blue he told me that I did not love him anymore, I did not want him anymore, I picked on him all the time, I was not the sweet woman he had married, I was in love with another man who lived in the neighborhood who just happen to be mentally handicapped, I had 1000 credit cards and I was in deep debt. Next year I had hoped to go on a trip out west with our son and my husband told me I was too old to travel, we could not do things like that anymore, and if I did go anywhere it was probably going to be with this handicapped individual. My husband used to be the life of the party. He no longer wants to socialize although we do go out together with each other maybe to dinner or to an event but never with anyone else. He is depressed and just sits around. Our children are not around because they all have lives of their own and he uses this as an excuse as well, he is not their hero anymore, well they are all over 50 years old so…… I want to tell all of this to our doctor, but if my husband thinks that I even consider the possibility that he has some kind of condition, It will cause great great friction between us. He was tested for Alzheimer’s a year ago and the test came back negative, but I don’t know how many tests he was supposed to take. There was an MRI scheduled and he did not go to that. Is there any help out there?
