Just to know I’m not alone, he remembered me for a little time today but I’m gone again now, heartbreaking xVery similar situation with me over the last few weeks. Husband thinks I am either his sister or sister-in-law. Sat next to me this afternoon and told me he needed to fetch his wife from work! He also does not think he lives here , he is just visiting although he built the house and has lived here 20yrs. Strangely he realised he did live here when he saw the cat. Hurts that he knows the cat but not me. Sorry , I know that's not helping you except to know there are lots of us in this situation.
I’ve had this for about 9months. Suddenly one day, my husband told me his wife had gone, seemingly had disappeared overnight without a word. His biggest worry was that she had taken his money!! A few weeks later he told me she has died. And that‘s where we still are today. When we look at photos he tells me it’s his wife, but has no idea it’s me, even fairly recent photos. I’ve got used to it, but some days it really gets to me. I seem to have slotted in her place, and sometimes he can be fairly affectionate, but no question that I’m new here!!Just to know I’m not alone, he remembered me for a little time today but I’m gone again now, heartbreaking x
My OH generally knows who I am but if he has an off day or infection he asks if I'm his mum. I just say yes as he was very close to her and loved her dearly so I know he feels safe when he thinks he's in her company. On one occasion he asked me if I would like to be his mum, I said I would love to be and it was an honour he had asked me. I always said the day he didn't know me would break me, but in all honesty as long as he feels safe and secure I am happy with whatever he believes.
