Just sending you a big hug. I'm in a very similar situation I'm 66 and hubby is 74 and we've been together over 30 years. Just when you've got the time and money to do things the person you want to do things with is taken away. Now I feel so alone and the person who made me feel special does not recognise me all the time. With it coming up to Valentines Day it makes it even worse. We will get though this cos we have to but the road is not going to be smooth. XxxMy husband has been prescribed Risperidone. It started out as taking half a tablet on an as and when basis. That hardly worked at all, because he refused to take them!! Then gradually I have been told I could increase the dose to firstly a half tablet daily, then twice and a few months ago, it is up to 3 of these half tablets. The max dose is 4 of the half tablets. She also gave him Mirtazipine, to be taken each night before bed. Unfortunately some blood tests indicated a lack of sodium and she took off the Mirtazipine. At the same time, she kept on to me to go to the GP for some antidepressants, which I eventually did. I agreed to taking a very low dose , and all of this together has made life more bearable. I have since left off the antidepressants and still manage OK. Most days I can put up with this business of him not knowing I’m his wife. I rarely try to explain who I am, and in his head I don't think I even have a name. He tells me about things they did together!! I just let it go! I have mentioned on TP earlier that we are coming up to our 30th Anniversary and I am finding that difficult to face. The idea that there is no such anniversary in his thoughts, is depressing, but I can’t do anything but get on with it. I have somehow reconciled in my mind that time is limited and therefore I just have to do my best. This doesn’t stop me crying some days about this blooming awful life I’ve found myself in!!!!
