My name is Morvern. My husband has just turned 50 and last july started getting tests etc. He has now been diagnoised with Frontotemperail Dementia. He has never been able to accept that there is anything wrong with him. Has told family and close friends that i have brain and mental problems. Also told to not so close friends. I live in a small town whre everyone knows about everyone else. Because my husband looks well and healthy people dont realise how ill he really is. I feel that it is my husband who has dementia but it is me that is becoming demented. My husband has now been told by specialists that he can no longer drive He cant accepted this. At the moment he still has the ability to work only because there have been no reports from his work. The last time we were in Glasgow for appointment with specialist i was told to start looking for respite but also have to look for long term care. I do love my Husband but really am struggling with whats going on with me as i do feel the man i married 6 years ago is no longer here and I have been left with a stranger, the things that my husband believes are true are so crazy; our 6 year old granson even told his papa to stop telling stupid stories. My husband has always loved grandson but know has to be watched as though wee fella brings out very child like behavior with husband. Sometimes i feel a though i am standing total isolated my 19 year daughter is also suffering through all this. I am so scared of what is ahead of me, this has all been explained to me by doctors etc. Some times just want to run away and not come back. Sorry for this long moan if there is somone out there in simaliar position please contact me.
