Tonight my husband, who has PSP, told me off for being too cheerful. My heart is breaking seeing him deteriorating in front of me. I asked him, what he would rather have and he said for me to be in his shoes. If I was in his shoes and he was in mine, I have no doubt that his care of me would not, in anyway compare with the love and support I have given him. I cannot begin to explain how hurt this makes me feel and just now, right now, I could walk away. I won't. But this spoiled, selfish, unconcerned behavior is what I struggle with most. He could not survive without me and his life would be awful in a care home. But just now, they can come and take him away. Tomorrow, it will be better, just need a rant
