I see there are differences but I also think and believe that partners and children of sufferers can help each other with their experiences and understanding. Seems sad for a forum to split them into two groups IMO anyway. I have learned a lot from the partners on this forum, I feel sure partners have learned from the children.Having cared for my mother who had vascular dementia and currently caring for my husband who as Alzheimer's I can see both sides. Yes there are many similarities. I find the emotional side of things totally different.
Yes I did respond to the other one I thought it hadn't anything to do with rainI put this on the wrong thread by mistake so I thought I'd best post it here as well - just for the record!
I think part of it is the acceptance of the loss of everything you had planned to do together, the loss of the person you shared all your thoughts, hopes and dreams with. Basically the shift from life long partner to carer.
I just don't get this.I would imagine BE's threads will eventually go into one if the forum headings. At present they are in the archive section.
I know this point has drifted towards the beginning of this thread- but I want to support what Izzy and jeany have been saying: that the difference between a parent and a partner is absolute. If you have had the good fortune to make a good partnership that is part of growing up and away into the next generation. You are looking forward.Yes I did respond to the other one I thought it hadn't anything to do with rain
That is exactly it Izzy, anyone who has not been through this with their husband or partner couldn't possibly understand,
love Jeany xx
