My wife thinks people are coming in and out of our home all the time. Tonight I’m sleeping on the couch in the den because she doesn’t recognize me as her husband ((of 48 years this Feb) She thinks her husband might return home and find us in bed together, plus she has her own morals. This happens everyday.
My dad keeps telling me the police are coming to get him. For not paying for a snack, for harassment, for not paying a bill. I pay his bills and he lives in an adult care home. It's difficult to talk with him, because that's all he really talks about. He's on an anti-hallucination drug, but I'm not sure it's helping. And I am the only one in his family. Literally. This has been been the most difficult year of my life. I don't know what to say to help make him feel better. At first I just went with it, then said that he was okay. But now it's all the time.
In 2018, my wife suffered from frontotemporal dementia and a year later, Alzhaimer disease was added. Esim is just 51 years old, she is very young for this disease, her doctor said that her brain age is 95, in fact, I have been feeding her food like a child for 3 years and drinking water with my hand, Her own She can not meet any of her needs, I am alone, on household chores, gardening, all payments, all work, I feel very tired, my wife has started to urinate in the bed, I am tired of washing bed covers everyday, she has started not to eat her meals, She don't want eat when I feed her. , refuses to take his medicines, I don't know what to do, if I don't lose my mind, it's fine. If anyone has any information about how she to drink these dementia pills to my wife, must write me, She was drinking the her pills until the last week, there was no problem, the mood has changed a lot in the last week, she is doing much setback, she doesn't listen any words. I have much stres.
Thank you for asking this question. I am heartbroken. I’m pretty sure my mom has dementia- but she’s told everyone for years she’s scared of me- which I don’t understand. I called her last night (first time in years bc she usually ends up screaming at me). I don’t know what I was thinking.
she’s in a retirement home now- so I called and asked a nurse to help me contact her. The nurse strangely sounded excited I was calling her. (Strange right?)
yes she started screaming at me the moment she heard my voice....screaming that she hates me....but also that she wants the “things back that (I) stole when I broke into (her) house.”
She claimed I had my toddler outside the door as a “lookout” and I took valuable things.
I havent seen her in years - and I’m also disabled- so I can’t walk let alone run anywhere.
I said I didn’t know what she was talking about- and she just kept repeating it.
I finally just told her I called to tell her how much I love her and hope we could talk and meet up to discuss moving on.
she told me unless I admitted to stealing the things and give them back- we had nothing left to talk about.
then hung up on me.
so how does this work- dementia? Do they say how they really feel or .....
im gutted. I really can’t move today. She’s my mom and said she hates me and never wanted to see or speak to me again.
