Wouldn't really do it, but nice to dream. Just having a carer melt down, it's been a bad day.
yes it's the you can't really leave can you, walk away. You feel responsible.......well I doabsolutely!! Even did it once - took the car and drove to a lovely quiet spot in the pitch black, sat there for half an hour and then worried sick for half an hour and went home lol so much for resolve!!!
The fall and rise of Reggie Perrin. Remade a few yeas ago with Martin Clunes playing the lead.oh yes, would love to walk away, do a Reggie Perrin. By the way, what was the name of that programme? Everytime i mention doing an RP, I have to explain to anyone under 50. lol.
harder still when you can't financially. once my husband is in care, i lose the house, because I wont be able to keep it with the loss of income.
You are not alone I quite often feel that way. But I'm still here hope you are feeling better soon xx
Drama queen!!! Would she like to try it? Day in day out, constantly?? No! I didn't think so. Hurt & also outraged on your behalf.My husband has now been OFFICIALLY diagnosed, it's mixed dementia. Vascular dementia and Alzheimer's. This is on top of the colorectal cancer and colostomy bag. He has no idea, speaks of his tummy and forgetful problems. I feel like running out the door several times a day!! But we don't. We keep going. I have to get up every 2 1/2 hours through the night to check his bag. If not he has accidents which are not to even be discussed. Hours of cleaning result. Trouble is one gets so very tired over the months. My daughter who was staying with us accused me of being a drama queen last Monday. I was so hurt. She went to stay with her brother who also seems to be more distant. My husbands three children don't even phone. It's the loneliness and fear that get to me.
