New feelings

I've never been a worrier , and never let anything bother me, but since my wife was diagnosed with early Alzheimers I have not been sleeping as well as I used to ,and now other things are preying on my mind in the middle of the night. Usually , in the morning , they don't seem as bad , and the feeling of impending doom lifts. My blood pressure is up and down ,sometimes too low and I get dizzy , and vision blurring. I'm 71 ,nearing 72. I hate getting old..

  • Sounds like you need some support.

    Have you got anyone you can talk to? I know it's easier said than done but sometimes just sounding off can help clear your mind.

    Alternatively, why don't you try writing down your thoughts and feelings in a diary or journal?

    Just getting the thoughts and feelings out there can help you see things in a different light and may just help you relax more.

    I hope you get the peace you need and the help or support you deserve. Take care. Here if you need to talk.

  • I've worked in a few care jobs, and I have a grandmother in the same position. I agree with the poster, Lostinmyself, support is always good, you should seek it. There are lots of support groups out there. Keeping your worries to yourself will be damaging in the long run. It's hard news you've received, and you must allow yourself time to deal with it. However, you have to enjoy life with each passing day, I know this is easier said than done, but having this on your mind heavily with each day will make you seriously ill. Find groups in your local area, or ask advice from your doctor, such times are best dealt with with friends. I know what I've said won't remove your troubles, but I hope it lifts them :)
