To all of you who responded to my 'sensitive' question I thank you from the bottom of my heart!! It seems that this disease has robbed my husband of so much of his dignity and his strength...I HATE IT because of the way it has affected our lives!! It seems to me sometimes that as a caregiver and wife of a man who spent his whole life looking out for others and doing always just the right thing......its just another thing he has lost. He is SOooo discouraged about all this that he refuses to discuss it with his Dr. or me. He cries many times because of how he looks, what hes lost, his inability to function as a husband and on and on. Sometimes he strikes out at me with hurtful words and it takes all my strength to remember that 'this is NOT' my husband speaking but the BEAST that has invaded his body...after he has an outburst he always apologizes (with tears in his eyes)....HE IS a strong man and for him to be reduced to tears at times just frustrates him and makes him question if its all worth trying and going on.....I SAY IT IS!!!

Anyway thank you all I shall be watching the board and will keep hope for ALL OF US........
