My husband was diagnosed 14 years ago by a neurologist. since then 6 or 7 neurologists have confirmed his diagnosis. He has been on medication and has had test after test and rehab . he has vascular dementia and alzhiemer's. Last month I went to see the neurologist who has been prescribing his medication for ten years and he says to me that he doesn't think my husband has dementia he thinks he is paranoid and doesn't like me. I almost fell off the chair. my husband cannot do a lot of the things he used to do. he cannot remember a lot of the people he knew. he mixes everything up and doesn't know what he is doing at times. I am stumped. by the way he is the only person who has. doesn't he realize this gives me false hope? the other doctors say he is wrong. I am angry if he felt this way why did he wait ten years? he says he bases it on the fact that he will not go for a psychiatric examination. does he realize how hard it is to get him to agree to see any doctor? I need advice. I have two doctors saying he is not capable of handling affairs, he is still working on last year's income tax. and an attorney who told me to handle the finances because he was being conned constantly and I was having to undo everything. has anybody else had this type of experience?
