  1. Losthubby, I can relate to your story, and I'm very sorry for what your going thru with your wife. My boyfriend has had several strokes, it's been a horrible year. He can't or won't do anything for himself. He hates me, lashes out with awful words, accusations, hits, bit me, pulls my hair, he is a monster. A totally different person. He sits and does nothing, would stay in bed all day if I let him. Won't do any exercises, therapy was a waste of time he won't even go outside unless I force him kicking and screaming. Threatens almost daily he will call the cops and have me arrested. I'm struggling to wrap my head around this. He has no family, so I am his only help. I am to the end of my rope and am thinking about calling it quits but don't even know how to go about putting him somewhere. I would hang in there if he would not be abusive BUT i cant stand it much longer. I sleep with my bedroom door locked because im afraid of what he might do. Strokes are horrible...
  2. Thank you... yes, it's the brain damage causing most of his actions. I will just keep searching for answers. It helps just reading about others here and knowing I can ask people questions that understand how hard it is. This has been such a life changing thing for both of us. Sure makes ya look at life differently....
  3. Yes, I've spoked to his Dr. I also tell Don almost daily when he has his angry agressive fits that I can't deal with him and he will have to go live somewhere else if it continues... he doesn't care, he hates me and even threatens to call the cops and have me put in prison. He can't even tell me why, he just likes to say it. He hit me very hard last night, and the only way I can get him to stop and calm down is to spray him with a water bottle. It's rediculous. I feel sorry for him but I can't help him when he's like this. And since we are not married, I'm limited to what I can do or who I can talk to.
  4. Boyfriend has had many small strokes, he's now disabled, unable to work or drive or do most things without being reminded. He's living in my home, has no family so I'm his only help. I work full time so it's hard to deal with him. I watch him on home cameras to make sure he's ok when I'm gone. He's getting physical now instead of just *beep* off at me all the time. He's VERY angry and difficult. Yes, he's on meds... antidepressants, Seroquel. ... I need to start figuring out what to do with him. I made the decision that the next time he has to go to the hospital I will not bring him home. Can I do that, we have no ties, he has nothing or anyone else. All he gets is a disability check every month. Any advise or suggestions I would really appreciate it.
