OK, so can someone tell me how to remain sane when your husband has expressive and receptive aphasia? He thinks he's communicating fine which means he thinks I've either gone mad or am being deliberately difficult. I'm using a total communications approach as much as possible, but he doesn't recognise the problem, so the effectiveness of this is limited.
Over a year after his accident and we are still a long, long way from any kind of normal with my husband still in rehab during the week.
He comes home at the weekend for three nights and by the end of the second day I can feel my patience leaving, making me snappy and over sensitive. This is completely unfair on my husband who is amazing and working so hard despite not really understanding what has happened to him.
Does anybody have any words of wisdom?
