MY HUSBAND IS DRIVING ME CRAZY

My family think I’m addicted to gambling and want me to see a psychologist. My husband and I are in our sixties and he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease three years ago.

Although he still visits friends and plays golf, he’s driving me crazy at home because I have to repeat what I say over and over again and he just forgets anyway. He continuously wants to know where I am. I’m not a patient person and go out to gamble now and then to get away from it all.
