I am so done. I just can't take being screamed at 24/7. Am I the only one dealing with a loved one with PSP who is angry and violent? I am tired of the nasty tone in his voice when he asks for anything. And twisting my wrists when I try to help him or trying to punch or choke me. Lately when he tries to hurt me I want to hurt him back. I know it is the disease but I honestly do not know how much more of this I can take. I have someone come in a couple of hours a day. He is happy as a clam. Also with therapists and doctors he is Mr. Charming. it is like he holds it together for everyone else and saves the worst for me. I try to be patient and kind and loving with him but it does not do any good. Yes he has had medication. Either it makes him more agitated and angry or it messes him up and he falls more and gets hurt. He mumble incoherently, and when I get closer or ask him to say it again he either "sings" it out or makes sounds like a wounded animal.
Both in an ear shattering tone. He has alienated his family and children. I am all he has and I really want to be here for him but it is as if he is doing everything in his power to push me away. He has textbook PSP symptoms otherwise but I really never hear anyone else (on this site), bring this up.Am I the only one?!
