I have been noticing some Changes in my husbands attitude and memory. What's happening is life alterating, hard to accept! I hope I AM WRONG! Tests will soon be done.

Something is amiss
Things are just not right
Something is happening ,
as you repeat some questions

Sometimes you're very snappy,
when things don't go your way.
You huff and puff in anger,
gradually driving every one away

You say your mind feels blank
at times, memories aren't in place
Unseeing eyes stare briefly
into vacant space

I think I know what's happening,
tho I pray it isn't true
Alzheimers first set its deadly
sites on me, and now is
attacking you.

MaryGrace, I sure hope it's only a hormonal problem, they say this can happen when men have a low testosterone count - might want to have this checked out first. I pray all will be well with both of you.
