Hello, I'm 47 years old and my wife, Sue who is 54 years old was diagnosed with Alzheimer's 3 years ago. I am working full time and have been looking after my wife, coping with everyday household chores and just basically plodding through life on a day to day basis. Both Sue's family and my own family know about her condition and the fact that I am struggling to cope but, never offer any help other than "Well, I'd do this and I'd do that". They won't even pop round for a cup of tea and a chat!!! I have been married to Sue for 9 years and although we have had 5 or 6 good years, the last three years have been hard. She has been starting to deteriate since christmas and I am finally getting help for Sue through social services but, feel completely alone and also feel that I don't count in life. I don't want to sound selfish and I love my wife but, I feel life is going to pass me by. I get so frustrated, angry and feel unable to cope with the situation sometimes. I guess I'm just needing a shoulder to release my frustrations Sorry to vent my anger and frustration here but, does anyone else here feel alone ?
