It can make him feel that he is not that worthy to his family anymore. It can also make him feel depressed that thoughts of ending his life can enter his mind.

    this is a subject that i know all to well. I watched my grandmother go from a vibrant woman at the age of 71 to a woman with an IQ of a child at 73. It attacks the functions of the brain which controls all functions of the body. It slowly diterates the cells in the brain starting with memory first. Then it attacks motor functions like swallowing, chewing, moving the hands and feet, talking too. Then it goes into full scale where the body starts to chut down that's where they are in a vegetative state and bedridden. Then ultimately death. My grandmother started showing signs of it in the form of forgetfulness, then she started to go back in time and forget who or what she was talking about. It was the hardest thing when she would call me on the phone crying her eyes out because she was sitting in the bath tub and forgot how to turn off the water and it was running over all over the floor and into the rest of the house. To the families its expecially tough because you are watching someone you love dearly fall to pieces literally is front of your eyes. When they get to the point that they start to wonder off or get up during the midnight hour and walk off and get in the car or take a walk trying to go back home to when they were children it's scary and hard because it takes time out of your life. For me I had to put my life on hold almost and I was pregnant at the time, but I loved my granny so much it didn't matter to me. You have to understand that they are someone different now and that it's not pf their control they act the way they do. She also cussed us out, accused us of stealing or poisoning her. She hid things from us because she got to the point she didn't recognize us or trust us anymore. She would argue with us because she would forget things and she got frustrated easily. It's hard to take care of someone like that. Because they are unpredictiable. then when they get to a certain way they might only trust you to take care of them. Which for me was the case. it's a disease that changes not only the person suffering from it, it changes the person or people taking care of that person. After my granny died from this disease, I didn't want to become a nurse anymore. I couldn't take it again to see someone else go through that. It turn my world apart because she wasn't granny anymore. I had to take care of her like a 1 year old. Changing her diapers and cleaning up after her and feeding her. You go through so much. But I wouldn't have had it no other way. She raised me and took care of me, the least i could have done was do the same and for that i am grateful for because i was there the whole time. I loved her that much and will always.
