The decline of a spouse.

As we age and succumb to illness people deteriorate.  I had done elder care and seen people get really mean .  My own grandmother never hurt a fly and got pretty mean as she slipped away.

Do you hold people who are altered responsible for their behavior even if its your spouse?


How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

No, older people can say and do what they want. I have seen it with older family before they pass away and I do not take how they act to heart.

My husband came home from his latest deployment with a brain injury, he is not a bad man, but is is not the quiet listener type he was before. He has little to not attention span and is very irritable. He used to be sweet, now he's kind of a jackass. He's working on it in therapy, he knows he's not the same and it bothers him.



Do I give him more leeway before I get snotty back? Much more than at first. I'm learning too.
