A dementia affected relationship
Ash came into the kitchen this morning, looked at the weekly planning board and then there was this:
Ash: Someone's coming this afternoon.
Me: They are, it's a lady from the memory clinic.
Ash: Why is she coming?
Me: To see how we're doing.
Ash: Why does she want to know how you're doing, there's nothing wrong with you.
And that, ladies and gentleman, tells you all you need to know about the self absorption of the imposter of a husband I now live with. The lovely Ash of old has long since disappeared to be replaced by the most selfish man I've ever met. I know he can't help it and I'm sure it's partly a self preservation thing but it's so sad because he used to be the loveliest, the most thoughtful and the most caring person in the world and now he's such a different being.
On the positive side the lady wasn't from the memory clinic at all, it was a ruse but for what I can't tell you just yet. Watch this space however for further details as they're worked out.
