i understand what you mean. my husband was diagnosed with vascular dementia. i feel i lost parts of him like the support , being best friends knowing me so well he could see what was worrying me making me sad etc but although he still tries its diluted but he retains is sense of humour and is still a wind-up merchant. he thinks of me as his comfort blanket.he seems to sleep a lot and as a lot younger wife its hard but love conquors all so they say and we still have happy times[QUOTE="Janlee, post: 1728870,
I fully understand what you are saying it seems to people who do not understand that to say you miss your partner when they are right there with you but that is the heartbreaking part of it they are not there fully. No meaningful
discussion of anything no planing what to do just the ordinary things that we take for granted when we are all well. I am not aware of any support groups online so must research this for myself as well.
