quote:Originally posted by Jim Broede:Unfortunately, Cloudspn, you are talking about the nature of too many human relationships. Something less than acceptance and trust. It’s an affliction that goes way beyond Alzheimer’s. We humans have difficulty fully accepting each other. As we are. So we try to change the other. Rather than accept. Instead, it might be better to focus on changing ourselves. To be more accepting. More understanding. Then you would hurt less. --Jim

quote:If your husband is suffering from such severe delusions about your having a boyfriend, is he is a stage where it's safe to leave him alone with just phone calls and your son looking in on him? I don't know the answer to this -- but usually someone this confused and upset needs a lot of supervision and -- asap -- more medical attention.
