Need counsel to support MCI affected wife with anger management issues
I am seeking counsel of others. My wife Gisela was diagnosed with MCI last year at age 77, I am 72 now. She is about 80% of fully functional by my estimation. Main symptoms of impact are cognitive, memory and emotional. Of those the emotional is the most dominant dysfunction. She is angry, short tempered and unpleasant to be with. Those emotions present mostly to me, so she can appear to be ‘ok’ to other family members and friends. That at least enables her continued socialization. Regarding her MCI she has not embraced it, and rather is mostly in denial. Denial of any undesirable condition is toxic to treatment and even adaptation. I’ve sent communication to the MAYO HABIT program regarding attending the next session in Phoenix, we live in Green Valley AZ in Winter. Gisela has had a second opinion by Dr Benenati a Tucson Neurologist and has a more thorough slate of tests being scheduled, soon I hope.
