This disease seems to heighten either the best or the worst in us? I have found it particularly hard to accept the very derogatory language my husband uses to describe me when he does not get what he wants. In the past he would never have tolerated such behaviour from anyone. Instead, now he expects me to just take it as a 'norm' and part of his 'new' personality. I also find it difficult as he does not appear to be rude or aggressive to anyone else - if anything he comes across as 'saint-like' in his demeanour towards others. Has anyone been placed in a similar situation and how do you cope?
