My husband just went ballistic over my trip to get "fast" food taking longer than he perceived it should and his fear when I didn't get home when his mind on dementia thought I should. He thought I was gone 2 hours, and it was only 20 min. He has been calling me names and yelling at the top of his lungs that I don't love him! It is all so hurtful even though my rational mind knows it's the dementia, my emotional mind and heart are still hurt. This sort of thing happens three or so times a week or more, an it is wearing me down. I love my husband and I love the Lord but right now I feel alone and abandoned. Can anyone help me???

He has. Children from his first marriage in different states. No one close enough to rely on. I will soon have to look into some kind of respite care. Not looking forward to that fight....

It is hard, but you need to take care of yourself first. Are there any senior day care centers in your area? I had my mom in one for a year. took her on my way to work and picked her up after work. Cost was done on a sliding scale on income so was reasonable. In the beginning she fought it but then came to like going. She would help in the kitchen doing food prep, this made her feel wanted.

@Lddjfield You can only do what you can do. You do not have the word super in front of your name.
