I work part time 10 til 2 5 days a week. Little boy goes to school 7 years old. Hubby has alzheimers been diagnosed 4 years now. My problem is everyday for the past week he gets upset when I am going to work, he doesn't want to stay at home by himself. From crying to refusing to eat breakfast, it driving me crazy. I explain to him I have to work, we cannot live on benefits we wouldn't be able to pay the mortgage. I tell him all the hard work he did to give us a good life would go down the drain. Anything that makes him calm down. He used to go to the charity shop three afternoons a week but they let him go. He eventually excepted that as I told him the shop was closing down and made him redundant. After that he started to going to local temple, which has been fine ( have to drop him there before I go to work as he now gets lost going there however so far is still able to come home alright). Don't know what to do, its upsetting me and him everyday. The worse part is he is getting all worked up in front of our little boy. I try to keep things calm but as soon as he knows I am going to work he becomes anxious and keeps asking what he will do. Any ideas went to doctors again to ask about day care they have been looking into it since April but no reply from centre, doctor said he would send another request urgent, but who knows how long this will day. Not that hubby wants to go there he thinks I am trying to put him in a care home, told he would be a helper there, don't know how many lies I tell just to have a quiet calm life. Hubby only 62 I am 51 my life is passing me by at the moment, if it wasn't for our little boy keeping us busy don't know what I would do. However its not fair on him to have a father whose not well and a mother stressed out with the situation. I know I am carrying on and probably not making any sense but I don't care I have 10 minutes to myself whilst hubby is soaking his feet in warm water and not following me around or hovering over my shoulder whilst I type.............I cannot remember what it was like to have the house to myself and just sit down without someone staring at me.
