Henrietta, My husband used to pay me housekeeping money every month. He used to get me the cash. I asked the COP if I could continue to have this money, but I have it now paid into my account from his. As long as it was the normal in our household they are happy with it. I explain on the COP form it...
David. I'm very sad about your problems. My daughter was born 10weeks early and it was a very worrying time. 48 years ago. I don't actually read BBs and Jenny's posts as saying your girlfriend is a bad person? Sometimes txts emails and posts read harsher than what are meant. Both of these ladies hav...
Visited hubby today. Confabulating quite alot, but I can cope with that as long as it's positive thoughts. He did snap at me, thinking I had opened the window. That was ok, I explained it wasn't me, but shut the window, put a blanket on him and gave him a kiss. On the way home, walking past the vets...
Jenny I agree. Not wanting to digress from Diane's dreadful situation, I was trying to explain, what I feel is the best thing to do for the moment, and letting her know that I understand the trauma of having such calls. They are traumatic, whatever the relationship was/is. Unplugging the phone is a ...
It's very normal to be cross and angry!! You are cross with the situation not your husband. I still get angry. Not with my lovely husband, but with the illness that has taken our relationship away. You most certainly are not selfish.
Diane When my husband had his last stroke and developed delirium, he used to phone me night after night, being abusive. Vile things he said still can haunt me. Wasn't him, it was the delirium. However I decided I must not engage with the abuse, and pulled the phone plug. Told the hospital I was doin...
Haven't had a very good night again. Flashbacks. Probably anxiety about the pending meeting. I know we all get flash backs and have to get through. I decided today that I would take the weekend off from visiting hubby. Occasionally I do. Seem to know now when I should. It's about every 5 weeks I do ...
My daughter emailed our concerns and mentioned the words safeguarding and Care Quality Comission , body mapping..... Just so the manager understood we are on the ball so to speak. My two daughters and myself have photos. I've also been taking photos of any bruising on his hand. We don't go ranting a...
Hubbys nursing home.....well it is very good. I have to put my trust in the staff. However, little doubts creep in on admittedly few occasions. .ie his face being so badly bruised. I'm 90% satisfied with the managers investigation. She says lessons have been learned, re documenting etc. The other vi...
Things can only move forward now. Get a diagnosis. It's better to know however painful.
Give yourself a break now. You must. You are a very admirable lady.
