I can't go anywhere by myself anymore. I can't even go out to get the mail without him following me. I need to be alone to have some "me" time but he won't let me. He sits next to me just staring off into space thinking?! He asks me the same questions over and over. That isn't what I am so upset about it's when he is active he wants me to have sex with him and doesn't understand that his constant advances are turning me off completely. He is more persistent than when we were first married. I am 74 and haven't been interested since he retired 3 years ago and started demanding sex every day. He gropes me all the time and says "I've been working since I was 12 so now that I'm retired we can have sex all the time". Is this normal with dementia patients? It's getting to the point now that I can't stand to be touched.
I can't talk about this with anyone. I have two daughters but I don't want them to think less of their father for the way he treats me.
