Nothing I could do would stop it. He has never done this before. The nurse was here today and he was fine. Suddenly tonight he had to go to the bathroom. I said ok, let go. But, he wanted to wait. He was adamant as his show was on. I was in our bedroom as he likes watching his fighting shows. Since he did not want to go then, I said I would be back. When I got back he thought I had gone out somewhere. (for cigarettes). I don't smoke cigarettes... He was furious. If he tries to go alone, he will fall and be in a care home if he breaks his hip or something. He just does not get it. I cannot figure out what caused the sudden anger outburst. I am not used to this behavior. God I hate this disease. If this happens anymore, he may have to go live in a facility as I cannot deal with outbursts like this. I will ask the nurse tomorrow what could have caused this and is the medication the culpret? Or an infection??? I hope I can make it. Being a caregiver does have its limits. I love him dearly...Now that he is on Hospice, I would think the nurse will know what to do. I think I read where they can give them some drugs to calm him down. I figured he would get over it. An hour later and he is STILL angry.
Do not wait to talk to the nurse until tomorrow. Call the 24-hour number you were given. You may not get to talk to "his" nurse, but someone will be on call and can give you some guidance. Were you given a drug kit when you enrolled? I kind of forgot about ours because I was thinking of pain and hubby wasn't in pain. But there is also something for anxiety etc.
Please. Call the support number!
(And hugs to you.)
