I am wondering if your loved one knows they have ALZ. Even though it has been discussed in front of him at his doctor and I have talked with him about it I don't think he really knows. He says things like, "I wonder what is wrong with me?" He blames his struggles on all kinds of things like, he needs new glasses or he can't hear well but doesn't seem to really understand what is wrong with him. However- I have decided not to TELL him he has it anymore because on the few occasions when I have he has become severely depressed (even suicidal) and will be for a day or so until he forgets again. It is almost like he is happier living in denial and since there isn't much anyone can do I think it is better for him to live in denial.
