Trying hard to not weep as I read these sharings. Being at the nursing home with my husband (CBD) isn't a comfortable place to let myself feel.
I miss my best friend. This is so hard yet much worse is to come. I am so grateful for those who share their experience, strength and hope so as things progress, I will realize I am not alone.
Has anyone's loved one experienced combativeness, aggression and hallucinations with CBD? This is becoming a daily problem around 3:00 PM. Nurses are going to ask the doctor to prescribe something for this.
At times it takes 6 or 7 people to change him. Usually it only takes 2 to 3. Because he is moved with a Hoyer lift and his total dependence, it is becoming increasingly more evident that I can't take him home to care for him. Along with this comes the guilt for not doing so.
We, too, had many plans to enjoy life. I get very sad when I see much older couples being together and know that can't be us. That being said, we are blessed as we have had a marriage which I dreamed of. I try to keep that foremost in my mind and try to remain grateful. I miss him!
