I am 34 years old and I was diagnosed September 25th of this year with Vascular Dementia. I've been married for a year and a half. My wonderful caring husband got one day of peace and then I noticed a change. I noticed right away that something was different with me. I started dropping things and falling and getting dizzy and not being able to control my anger and my emotions and memory.
I am trying to stay positive but my husband cries in the mornings.. I hear him in the living room .. he thinks I am asleep, but I hear him. I can't get too sad because that just gives me a migraine which sets off the mini strokes which makes the dementia worse. He gets so frustrated with me when I am not "myself" which I don't know who that is anymore. He says to me "oh that's vaski again." That's her name. Vaski. And that hurts so much.. I hate Vaski... I hate her...
I don't know what to do. Anytime I have a feeling that means it's the dementia talking. How can I make him understand that I have feelings like anyone else? He tells me to stop my medication because he doesn't want me to suffer anymore which makes sense in some aspects right? What should I do.. does anyone know? Can anyone help me? I know he loves me but how can I help him when I am so sick myself?
