    Hi there,

    Sorry for not posting for a few weeks.
    Got emergency repite after all.... all a bit VERY last minute.


    Was away a few days , then Broadband and computer on blink. Took ages to sort out.


    I was feeling a lot better, and more relaxed. Then husband came home.
    Things still BAD. Looks like we may have to think about a more permanent thing.



    New medication not helping at all with aggression.
    Not sure if it can be increased without it affecting seizure meds.

    Still having the seizures ... just as bad as ever.

    Don't know if it a 'good thing'... but he has shown aggression towards me in front of others now... grabbing at me etc...


    Still a bit scared... But have an action plan in place if I need to 'bolt'.


    Sorry if I made any of you worry about me.

    Take Care

    hello daisy

    welcome back,
    think you did have a few wondering what had happened to you!!
    hope they manage to control the aggression, my mum seems to be going through it at the moment, so she's been put on a schitzophrenic medication which has calmed her to the point where she's asleep most of the day!!
    dont know whats the worse!!
    glad to see your ok anyway
    take care xx

    Big Thank You

    :) Thank you all for your concern... soooo very kind of you. :)


    Still got lots of plans to make for the coming months.
    looks like it will be our last Christmas together (as a couple).


    How on earth do care home staff cope with the aggression side of things?
    Will my husband be drugged up to the eyeballs.. just for some peace and quiet?


    Want things to move on now... nothing is going to change (for the better).
    Don't really feel as though this is a 'home' any more.


    Staying as strong as I can, given my day to day situation.

    Thank you all again.



    If I knew how to attach one of those BIG Connie hugs I would do it !!


    Take Care,

    DaisyG
