Well here I sit another day with Mike in bed and no end in site to this madness of four walls that are closing in around me. Mike has decided that he is tired of taking all the meds that he has been on and has chosen to only take the ones medically necessary to keep him from having another stroke. He has been sleeping more and more here lately and I am wondering if it is the change in seasons or if he has become depressed with his life and just won't admit it. I have talked to him about trying a depression med but he will not here of it, says that he isn't depressed. We got the doctor to prescribe him meds for his lack of energy and he took it for about a week, in my opinion it seemed to help but he said after the first few days he couldn't tell that it was helping anymore so now he won't take it. He started taking zinc for his taste and said after about 3 days it was working great, now he says it isn't helping and so he won't take it anymore either! I just don't understand why things seem to work in the beginning and then he is right back to where he was. I know the stroke damaged his brain but I just can't figure out how to help him anymore. I can't force him to take the medicine all I can do is offer it to him and if he takes it, great, and if he doesn't then I have done my part. I just don't know what else to do. Oh well guess that's enough rambling for now. Hope all is well with everyone!
