Fyi...Since January, my wife has actually exhibited an improvement in short term memory...for example..she can pick up on a subject from the day before...


All along, she can still be left alone...she doesn’t drive...


She is lonely.....her friends avoid her like the plague...


Recently...the last few weeks...she has started talking to the people in magazines....she was whispering to me the other day...I asked her to speak up...long story short....she didn’t want the person in the magazine to hear what she was saying...


She is interacting with people in the magazines.


I could give more examples.....


I have become very alarmed with the latest behavior.....


Has anyone else experienced this type of behavior?

Hey Tim. This is quite a journey, isn't it? Each manifests their own, in often some really wacky ways, which makes it difficult for us who are caregivers in real world.
I hope you stick around. You will get some great advice here.

In the meantime, do know, we have been where you are, in varying degrees. Sometimes not as bad. Sometimes worse.

We are all in this together and we learn from each other. Peace to you sir. Take care of yourself. And there is no shame at all in saying it is beyond your abilities.

Take care and we are glad you are here.

It certainly is...quite a journey...just when I think I have it figured out...I don’t.....
I am not sure if I even know what normal behavior “IS” anymore...
It is soo blurry now...

Be sure to get her checked for a UTI, just in case.

Part of the desease. Their reality becomes dreams, TV and with you magazines. They all blend together and they don't have the mental ability to separate them.

Yeah....she talks about TV characters as if they are real sometimes....
Today she was talking...not to me...I asked her who she was talking to...and she said she was talking to her friend...I said, you do realize that you the dog and I are the only ones in the room..she said..yeah I am crazy.
