We can all forget things especially where we put stuff keys phone etc. I often forget where I have parked in a car park it drives me mad but it does not concern me.
On a daily basis I have noticed my DH is more forgetful. I noticed a difference when he retired two years ago and went on meds for diabetes. I will gently remind him he has told me something already. He will reverse it and tell me that my memory is bad! He gets quite frustrated and argues about it and it’s getting more obvious each day. I suggested next time he goes to have his check up he could mention it to the nurse. But I know he won’t as he can be very stubborn.
My friend had the same problems with her DH so she made out her memory was failing. She suggested they both talk to GP about it. Her DH actually agreed to it had tablets prescribed hopefully to slow it down.
I know it can be a sign of dementia as my mum had vascular dementia . Any suggestions how I can sway my stubborn but lovely husband to seek advice.
