First of all I want to say how much I appreciate this site! If you have read my bio then you see what led up to me finding this site and all the helpful members. After a year of seeing signs of my husband's mild cognitive impairment (HYPER-sexual interest with a multitude of women online, memory loss and irritability) I am JUST STARTING to wrap my mind around having to interact with him differently. It's very, very hard. I watched a video wherein they said to "anticipate, tolerate and don't agitate" and I have failed at each and every one. He had a wellness exam last Wednesday and the day before I called the doctor's nurse to explain my suspicions but because of my husband's severe edema, he was placed in the hospital ASAP and the cognitive issue was not addressed. Perhaps it will be at his follow-up visit on the 17th. To date, though, the cognitive impairment has only been diagnosed by ME and not a doctor. All I know is this person I'm living with is not my husband and I can no longer respond to him as a wife....only a cook, maid, nurse, etc. I find myself being very resentful. I need to develop a thicker skin and stop personalizing things he does or sometimes says. Any suggestions and/or commiserations are welcome!
