Hello all. Just reread past posts. Thank you all. Husb doing a bit better..settling in I credit the Ativan he is taking and they actually give to him earlier in afternoon for what I think is Sundown syndrom. It was my suggestion. It helps with the anxiety that overcomes him like clockwork late afternoon.I hope you all have been coming well through your journeys. It's still a struggle. Talk therapy and Skill class helping as well but these 2 wkly appts. add to my long "to do lists". Having spiraling down episodes so I am told to continue…

@julesa Bless your heart. Thanks ever so for sharing. I was embarrassed to share that, but your reply truly makes me feel that I am not alone. It's a journey. Need to remind myself often. God is in charge. He has a plan, we just need to trust Him.

@hopeful33250 …Thank you for your kind words. Did try speech therapy when in early stage, but to no avail. He tried so hard but the therapist thought it was too stressful for him. And he is worse as I have said. Also has what doc called essential tremor which has also gotten worse and his balance is off. Needs assistance but hates to be followed he can still walk after getting help up from chair.

@hopeful33250 Doing better. I feel bad for my husband. He is frustrated when trying to talk. Says bits and pieces but I don't understand him very well. Now at meals he eats with hand while holding fork in one hand. Doesn't want help either. Not only does that stress me but this fingernails are filthy. I try to cut them. He doesn't like it. I'm washing his hands and also using a cuticle stick to clean nails. Nursing home doesn't bother. Frustrating.

@julesa @IndianaScott He is settling in a bit. Meeting went well. All concerns addressed…I am pleased with the way it was approached. Thank you for your input.

@georgette12 ,That is reassuring. He seems to be slowly becoming accustomed at times. His good days are my good days. How long and how often to visit is stressful. I don't want to abandon him, but I'm hoping to eventually to get back to some sort of social life.
