What do I do when I feel alone in caregiving?
I am at home with a husband who had brain surgery (two aneurysms) and he has improved from not know who I was to remembering people again. I am happy that he can shower, shave, walk, get dressed alone and know his preferences. However, I feel alone when he won't answer me, or look at me when I am trying to get a response to my questions. My questions have to deal with dinner, does he want a hair cut, taking medicine, and the like. I feel ignored, alone in this and it is frustrating! When I ask him if he realizes he is ignoring me, he says I don't know, or shrugs his shoulders. Maybe I am sounding controling, but I am not used to this situation and maybe I have "cabin fever". I don't know. He used to be a "know it all" and now, he doesn't know. Please help.
