I'm feeling upset with myself because Charles again lost his retainer with tooth attached. It was the second time and to replace would cost thousands of $. I found it in the trash inside the ice cream container. I was so mad and livid with him.

Problem is, he can't help it, I can't help it and even though we know what PSP is, it doesn't keep me from being ugly. I feel sorry and asked for forgiveness but can I forgive myself.

Thanks for letting me vent.

OH, I think that's more than forgivable! Of course you were concerned. What a good thing you found it!!!

(I've lost my temper over MUCH smaller things.)

We all loose our tempers, we are all going through this journey together, we are all there for each other, been there many times myself, on Saturday I thought I was going mad, George was very agitated, when the career came in I went into the garden for half an hour, felt better, but my head is still throbbing, sending you a big hug Yvonne xxxx

Cuttercat, of course you can forgive yourself!!! You lost your temper, big deal! Your lost your temper at your husband, since when was that a crime???

Our lives are hard enough, stressful enough, without having to mind our P's and Q's. Quite frankly, I don't think I lose my temper enough! Oh, I shout and scream all the time, but a big temper tantrum, that would do me a power of good. All the things I could vent, the feelings I could express. Perhaps not, so he will just have to put up with the "occasional" screams!

PSP is a cruel disease, not only for what it does to the sufferer, but it takes others along with it. You are just a big a victim as your husband.

So instead of beating yourself up, be nice, treat yourself. I like to say, go and buy something pretty, but I don't know your Carer situation, sneak a long bath/quick shower. Glass of wine, box of chocolates, whatever does it for you. Just spend however long you can, on yourself.

Lots of love

I'll try to take it easy tonight. We all are in the PSP spiral and we love our partners so much.

I truly appreciate you, Heady.

Yeah, when S gets fed up with me shouting, I tell him, he should try spending 5 minutes on my side of PSP, to see how "easy" it is!!! In my house, I am not only the baddie, but the wicked creature that gave it to him. He was fine until I started interfering and him to the doctors!

Lots of love

My huby regularly points out he is the one suffering PSP and I have it easy so why do I get so ratty?? Guess that would be the lack of sleep, running around after him etc etc. It is such a huge relief to have found this site and realise I am not alone in being ratty!!!!

That you definelty are not!!!! Perhaps we ought to invent a new meaning for PSP to sum up how we all feel. Sorry, way above my pay grade this morning, or I might have been able to come up with some suggestions. Love to hear everyone's else thoughts though.

Lots of love

We lost another pair of glasses---we have looked everywhere. Frustrating! You are right, not their fault.

Hang in there,

Oh sure you can ! But how to prevent the losing of the retainer? Does it hurt...annoy? Maybe you could have him wear it during supervision? He has to wear it a certain amount of time during day so as to keep teeth in place.....ask your dentist for suggestions! Talk with your dad how to help...Heck does he even need the thing anymore? Maybe he'd be more comfy without it!

Just thinkin
