The nurse tried to help me understand but has anyone experienced this? My husband was hospitalized a couple of days ago. They say its his dementia. This is the first time he has done the question thing. So bizarre. I talked with the nurse then had to leave. It was driving me up the wall!! He is scheduled to go to rehab tomorrow. He still knows me but I think he is scared of what is happening to him. He is just 59. Dementia is from epilepsy. We went to the er because he could not comunicate. They had to sedate him because he was freaking out! It was so heartbreaking.
