Something strange is happening in my live, which is making me more and more nervous. The whole thing has to do with my neighbour and how he is behaving with my wife and me lately.

We have been living in this residential area in the suburbs of the city for twenty years and, since then, we have been enjoying a peaceful live. From the beginning, the relationship with our neighbour has been very correct, from both parts.

However, from several months ago, I´ve noticed a change in his behaviour that makes me to be suspicious of him: his visits are more and more frequent, he´s continuously asking me about my health and he´s always patronizing me. I´ve even caught him speaking to my wife on the street several times. I feel really disconcerted about him, and don´t know what to think. If I didn’t trust my wife so much, I would have suspected that she was cheating on me.

After considering the problem at length, I decided to speak directly to my wife about it and let her know about my worry. However, a weird happening that took place last week, shook me profoundly. I had never been so surprise in all my life, when I overheard my neighbour whispering my wife: “I can´t put up with this situation anymore. Dad´s disease is tormenting me. He can´t even recognize his own son. He is always mistaking me for the neighbour.”

    This is a disturbing story about what mental diseases can make with us. In fact today I heard about an acquaintance who suffers Alzheimer. What a shame! Isn’t it a bit both humiliating and heartbreaking to be depending on someone else having being a perfect capable adult previously? However, on the other hand, isn’t it beautiful how relatives became self-denying carers and patiently mind you?

  2. Great post on mental disease. It reminds me of a cartoon by Quino in which two elderly people are talking to each other in a sofa. And the man says to the lady: Don’t take this wrong darling, but are you my wife, my daughter or my mother?
