I had to near enough fight my hubby for the laptop he was playing daft games, but i am here now, tell me if you want my email addy to have a realy big vent!!! always here to help. I may not be able to offer ny good advice because my pain is diff to yours, but i will listen! im here give me a shout if you want
my shoulders and ears are yours for using!
p.s i do so wish i could take your pain away for you. wish i was magic
I understand your frustration, i too suffer from that. i have 4 young kids and i too snap then feel guilty, hate not being able to play with them properly, i have 4 boys so as you can imagine high maintenance, and hard work, i a get angry at feeling so darn crappy. I get angry at the fact that the kids know why i have to go lie down, or rest or cant play. Im only going on 29. My son Joshua who will be 9 in sept, said to me today that he remembers me getting my intestine out! i too feel helpless a lot that i cant do much around the house, and my hubby helps a lot.
As for your hubby's mum with AD, AD is awful my gran had it, and i know how my dad was. Gran didn't even recognise my dad but she somehow knew my mum, her daughter-in-law. It is such an awful degrading disease, it takes it out of the carers, and no doubt your hubby is emotionally drained. Your hubby sounds as caring as mine. He too is always concerned about me and worrying.
I hope you get the stimulator thingy!!! sorry dont understand much about it but you seem convinced it will help and i realy hope it will.
I know you are hurting emotionally and physically sometimes i dont know what is worse. But you have wonderful hubby and by the sounds of i fab pets. Just get a cuddle from your lab and pretend it is you HW family. amanda xxxx
So sorry Scarred to hear all you are going though I wish I could do someting but all I can do is offer up my hugs and prayers for you.

Im very sorry to hear about you husband mom that is alwful to deal with AD. That on top of everything else hate that!
My thoughts and prayers are with you always
