Grumpy Old Husband
I googled this issue and found this site. I guess this is where the term "grumpy old man" comes from.
He used to smile when I came home from shopping and tease me, saying "I see you bought some stuff" with the bags I would bring in.
It was really the only form of affection I was getting from him and now that’s gone. He doesn’t even look at me. Or he says "mmhmm" before I’ve even finished what I’m saying.
And then I ask him about it and he says "We’re fine. I’m fine".
Isn’t this a sign of dementia? I hope not.
