I take care of my husband who has Alzheimer's. When I
think about it, I realize we have been going through this
for several years. The last two have been a nightmare.
He does what I ask him to most of the time, but he
doesn't like me to be out of his sight. He insists he
doesnít need anyone with him when I have to go somewhere,
but the doctor said my husband cannot be left alone. Because
of that I find it is just easier for me to stay home, but
now I find I'm isolating myself.
I'm trying to get away at least one day a week, but what
I have to go through to get away makes me not want to go.
I've told my husband I need to get away and I can't relax if
I know he's going to make a fuss. Is there a proper
way to deal with this issue?
