Re: question about confusion and short term memory?

Hi jhl1, Things take time huni, I know you've probably heard this a lot, but it's true. My partner had a stroke 5 weeks ago, he's done so well physically, his dr and physio etc are all really amazed at how well he's doing.

He gets confused and memory loss when tired. It can be very upsetting. I know he gets upset, bless him he tries not to show it but he goes for a nap in bed whenever he is upset. any other nap he goes for is on the sofa.

You must be very scared with a toddler to look after by yourself, do you have any support? is there any help locally you can take advantage of?
Writing things down is a very good idea.

Keep reminding yourself of how well you have done so far.
Bless you, this is very difficult for you I know but you will get through it 1 day at a time.

Look into what help is available to you and take as much help as you can.

Take care huni. let us know how you get on.
love n hugs Vonbon1 x
