As the dementia years have slipped by, the number of activities that my OH and I can do together has diminished. Going abroad stopped 2 years ago, holidays here stopped last year. Next to go were evenings out, then day trips. Now I do not think he could sit through a film or even lunch. At home he doesn't sit through a whole meal, not even breakfast. He gets up after 5 minutes and wanders around. So my little world is becoming even smaller very quickly. I suppose one day I'll be able to do any of these things again - will I want to? I know that many of the lovely people who post here are finding it hard to get back into "normal" life and I can see how this would happen. Never mind, tomorrow I'll be back to dealing with the pull-ups, leakages, showering - that'll take my mind off it.
