    Have you ever just felt trapped with no place to go?

    Yep - in a eternal holding pattern. Can't go back - can't go forward. Just exist.

    I keep feeling like being held captive against my will by a.stranger. But if I escaped, no one would clap or put me on tv or ask how I could possibly stand 5-10 years of this abuse. Oh no, they would put me in jail and accuse me of neglect. And there are what? Millions of us doing this?

    Lately when I loose it or try to tell him how this is affecting me he threatens to put his coat on and leave. I tell him go ahead and I will end up in jail. He what for? I say 'elder abuse' for not doing my job keeping you safe. Tell him in this state when someone is diagnosed with dementia the spouse can't even divorce him. It is depressing we are kept prisoners by more than the disease but the state too.

    Funny, I was just thinking I should delete this post. So many things in my mind lately shouldn't see the light of day.
    When he says that, I go get his jacket and hold it out for him. But he doesn't wander. Isn't that just my luck?

    I don't think he would - not yet anyway. His dad and sister would take off but so far he has not.

    bhv, you sure defined our situation, "captive by a stranger"
    The first six years of captivity were not so hard but, last two is getting hard. I don't know how some of you are existing in this prison.
