I've certainly heard the 'I'm not stupid!' remark, alongside the 'how can you expect me to remember?' or 'why didn't you remind me' It's absolutely maddening. The disease is always changing, and I hope you find some peace along the way, or at least a method that helps you to deal with it calmly. Life is still worth living, and you will find a way through it. I feel exactly the same, and I hope it's not a long ordeal for any of us.You are so right, I have exactly the same situation as you. My husband is an angry stranger, as long as he doesn't have to think or do anything he is moderately happy, but he is completely unaware of how much I now do, every bill, every meal, every chore I now do whilst he reads all day. If I remind him about things he says 'I may have dementia but I'm not stupid', if I don't remind him he says 'How can you expect me to remember I have dementia', this twisted thinking is constant and I feel like I am going mad!! I pray that this does not go on for years, life would not be worth living.
