My husband, in a middle stage of vascular Alzheimer's, is great at "showtiming". It's an Alz Assn term for the ability to rally for short periods of time, like a dinner party or a doctor's appointment. The effort of it, however, makes him crash afterwards. This year, at Thanksgiving, EVERYONE told me that Henry seemed "fine." And he did, sort of. (Until later, back at the hotel when all hell broke loose.) I find myself resenting Henry's superpower of acting normal around others only to fall apart around me. It makes me feel more isolated. As if I am making up Henry's illness. Anyone else have this same experience?
