I read the forum avidly, and have learnt so much - but yet, I feel very alone. Is there anyone out there who is caring for 24/7, their partner/spouse, who has developed dementia after only a short relationship? I have been with my OH for 8 years - looking back we had about 3 good years before the start of his dementia. So many people on here are looking back over much longer relationships, with good memories, and love. I wonder if 3 years is enough to help me see this thing through till one of us dies?
