Reading your post tugs at my heart. I read somewhere that one of the common traits of these brain degenerative diseases is a lack of empathy. I have seen my caring husband of 55 years relate to me as if I was hired help. He has absolutely no interest in me or anything about me. I have been lost in his eyes for seven months now and he has no memory of our life together. He is nice at times when he needs something. The other times he is quiet and sullen. I want you to know you are not alone and at times I am ashamed of the vulgar words I use. I am lonely and sad most days and the really hard stuff is up the road yet.
I pray for patience. I send you my caring heart.
