So, I know many of us live in a home that lacks conversation and communication. Having gone through the argumentative stage I prefer the silence although it makes me sad and lonely. My OH generally responds when I speak to him but recently there is a change. A few days ago when I was in the kitchen he came to get me, he didn’t speak, just took my hand and led me to the living room and pointed to the tv which had turned itself on to stand by mode, I took the remote turned it back on asked if he was ok and got a nod in response. When I say Good Morning or hello instead of a reply he just waves to me! He seems content enough but seems to avoid speaking. It’s so sad. But then about 3 weeks ago we had a visit from the Memory Clinic and had an Oscar winning performance! He chatted, joked, laughed and bantered with her, I barely recognised him! Why can’t he be like that with me and my family? Now that makes me sad and angry!
