I fear my husband has vascular dementia and he is having a ct brain scan on the 28th April 2015. TBH I will be more surprised if it comes back normal. A diagnosis will be an answer to his odd behaviour and aggressive outbursts. I feel guilty saying this as it's like wanting him to have dementia but the last few months have been difficult. There is an age gap between us and we have a 15 year old autistic son. I think he has been ill for a few years but I put it down to stress and the "incidents" were not so frequent. It does not help he wont visit the DR either. I sent a letter to the DR and he saw him when he was getting his routine bloods done. However now he becomes aggressive if we do not agree with him, starts shouting or will slam doors, barges purposely into my son or me (he is 6 foot and 17 stone) but then can be contrasting and act silly, he has become obsessive about horse racing basically on internet and watches it on TV all day god help if we want to watch anything as he will get verbally aggressive and say he never watches the TV and I really think he believes this, he seems to only be able to have a conversation about the past when he was in the RAF, he has no interest in going anywhere and would happily sit all day in his dressing gown and now recently he has put my frozen food shopping away in the fridge and made me grilled clotted cream on toast. He forgets things and will leave cooker on but knows who we are. I think vascular dementia because he has high blood pressure, sleep apnoea and type 2 diabetes. Does this sound like dementia or depression? Do the ct scans show the type of dementia? Sorry for the long post. Being young I have no experience of dementia and friends my own age just cannot relate to it. I'm 36. What help is offered if he was diagnosed, I'm in S Wales.
