Thanks everyone for sharing. It's good to hear about things that have been helpful :)

@mikeb2 I'm really sorry that there isn't much in the way of activities or places to meet for your OH in your part of the country. The community is always here for you, so please do keep posting on here for support.

Hello @MatthewB Please don't worry about becoming a bad guy, I do not think that will happen to you. If your doctor has prescribed diazepan it would be OK for you to take it. It can help with anxiety.

Hi Matthew

Good to hear from you again 😀

Anxiety or worry in dementia is common. My mum has it. I also get anxiety too.

Its very common to worry about bad things happening - most of the time they never do. In vascular dementia most people keep their lovely personalities and do not become mean.

The diazepam will help especially if you are worrying at night time.

look forward to hearing from you again.

Here is a nice picture i took at dusk.

Wow what an amazing view from your backyard - that’s gorgeous!

The monument is at the top of a hill I walk to from my house. As we are in Southern England the top of the monument tells you the miles to London, the coast and other important towns in the area.

I've been using an app called Calmer for practicing mindfulness, which has been helpful. It has guided mindfulness exercises that I've included in my daily routine. These exercises help me stay grounded and reduce feelings of anxiety. It's about being present in the moment and acknowledging your thoughts and feelings without judgment.

Another method that's worked for me is staying active. Specifically yoga. Immensely beneficial for both my physical and mental well-being. By practicing yoga regularly, I've noticed a significant decrease in my anxiety levels and an overall improvement in my mood.

Also, sharing your struggles can help lessen the burden. Together, we can support each other.
