Big changes

I have noticed in the last few weeks a lot of changes in my hubby. He does fairly well for a while then bam.....doesn't know how to do anything! Last night he took at least two hours to get to bed. He usually goes about 8 or 8:30 somewhere around there. Well last night he didn't know how to get into the bed. After taking him into his room many times and showing him how to get in and under the covers he just couldn't get it. He finally came out into the family room where my daughter and I were watching tv and he got down on the floor and did sit ups. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I was also impressed that he was able to do that many! He can't get two words out that make any sense so he was a mime and trying to show us what was wrong. I feel so bad for him but it is soooooooo frustrating I could just roll over and die. Over and over the same thing and I can't understand a thing he is saying. Of course then it is my fault and the doors start slamming and the cursing etc. etc. I really feel trapped in my own home and have the worst feelings toward him. I know he can't help it but my God how do I deal with all this??????

I just lost my mother November 18th and that is still hard to handle also. Too much all at once I guess.

Just need to vent again.

Jan

Re: Big changes

I am so sorry, Jan. About the loss of your brother, and your husbad's exasperating condition.

I hope a solution can be found - it sounds like he needs to be in a place where other people routinely put him to bed ...

Love,

Martha
