I think it’s really hard emotionally to take control of a partner. When I’m struggling I think of his CT images which showed so little brain left. That reminds me he really can’t function and I have to do it. My husband buys stuff but then forgets it ,so at least I can take it back unopened and he doesn’t ask about it.

Hi, I’m wondering if anyone has any advice or suggestion's… my husband is buying things he doesn’t need, trainers seem to be the favourite! He has bought 7 pairs. He has never been a one for shopping and he would have the same pair of shoes for years. He has the Vinted app on his phone and this is where he is buying them. He seems to find one brand he likes and then just keeps buying. T-shirt’s also I think he has bought over 20. He isn’t working now hasn’t for the past year, we have 3 kids at home so we need to be sensible with spending. I think some of this is due to boredom, it seems to happen when I’m out or at work. He spends all day in front of the TV and looking at his phone. I have said to him that he doesn’t need the trainers but he just laughs at me..
Thanks for reading 😊
Hi Angel4, my hubby is doing the same thing but because every day is different when I tried to send stuff back, stop the payments or any of the other sensible things to do he was really angry with me. He's in that stage now where we're all "trying to get rid of him" the worst one is "I'm not dead yet but you'd like that eh" so I'm treading water just now, we're working on getting POA but even that's a battle, I wish I could help but just knowing you're not alone in this just sometimes helps me. Hope you get things sorted. Jean

Hi Angel4, have you spoken to your bank to see if there’s anything they can do to help? I had to do that when my mum was buying random things from catalogues in the newspapers and started giving scammers her bank card details. I think giving hubby a prepaid card is probably the best option though, because he still has a bit of control without you having to stress about him overspending 💞💞
