    ....... SCREAM........... and scream and scream and yell and shout and swear and cuss and stamp my feet and slam doors and throw things at the walls and put a hammer through the windows and TV screen and then go smash everything else to little squitty bits ......

    Ahhhhhh. That's better. Thank goodness for this safe place.

    I shall now pop a jacket on and go walk about, so long as 'he' is sleeping soundly.

    and me.....

    Yesterday whilst explaining to someone about my husband saying he needed the toilet when he didn't, I said that if I so much as raise my voice he says he needs the toilet. She was quite shocked that I should ever need to raise my voice. She thought I was cruel as "he can't help it". Well neither can I.

    I've had days like that too AbbyGee. C always looks at me funny and says " I didn't know you swear, I thought you were so nice " in an innocent politely shocked voice. It was good that you could come on here and let off steam, I hope you were ok walking last night and today is a quieter day.

    that's a response I get. The things some people say. I understand your frustrations.
    Someone even threw back at me 'Well you should have more control as you are not the one with mental health issues!' Most people have no concept of 24/7 caring and living with dementia.
    @AbbyGee well done for finding your release and hitting the keys. I hope you enjoyed your walk and you found some calm.

    Yes, Yes - this is the unfortunate world we live in - that so many people think 'is just a bit forgetful.'

    In my head, I scream all the time

    I say goodnight several times and he still has to try and get into my bedroom, my haven, after lights out. I have a chair lodging it but he still tries to say goodnight yet again. Just writing that makes me feel bad. So I shout you may not come in, go to bed and he does, but I wonder what the neighbours think...
