I know it is here but i cant except it myself
i cant treat my hubby like a child even though he acts like one
every thing he touches goes wrong but to take it all away

Dear Bel, Oh how I feel for you. I know exactly what you mean. I try to overlook or cover up the mistakes whenever possible. I`m treading on eggshells trying not to let him realize how bad he is.

But it`s impossible to cover up everything and sometimes he knows he`s got it wrong and sometimes he doesn`t. He knows he has lapses or absences and has no memory of what`s happened. Then he says to me `Did I harm anyone?` He thinks his `Mental Illness` will cause him to be violent and he`s frightened.

Hi Bel
It's hard isn't it? I'm in a better position where mum truly believes she washes herself,dresses herself,cooks,cleans and irons.........it has been tough though as bit by bit I've taken these things away from her.....for her own safety..
love xx
