It is so sad how this disease changes all of us so much more than just the physical.
This song came up on our Elvis CD just the other day. As I listened, I wondered if my DH was also hearing it the way I was. It made me so so sad.

You've Lost That Loving Feeling
You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips.
And there's no tenderness like before in your fingertips.
You're trying hard not to show it, (baby).
But baby, baby I know it...
You've lost that lovin' feeling,
Whoa, that lovin' feeling,
You've lost that lovin' feeling,
Now it's gone...gone...gone...wooooooh.
Now there's no welcome look in your eyes
when I reach for you.
And now your're starting to critisize little things I do.
It makes me just feel like crying, (baby).
'Cause baby, something beautiful's dying.
You lost that lovin' feeling,
Whoa, that lovin' feeling,
You've lost that lovin' feeling,
Now it's gone...gone...gone...woooooah
Baby, baby, I get down on my knees for you.
If you would only love me like you used to do, yeah.
We had a love...a love...a love you don't find everyday.
So don't...don't...don't...don't let it slip away.
Baby (baby), baby (baby),
I beg of you please...please,
I need your love (I need your love),
I need your love (I need your love),
So bring it on back (So bring it on back),
Bring it on back (so bring it on back).
Bring back that lovin' feeling,
Whoa, that lovin' feeling
Bring back that lovin' feeling,
'Cause it's gone...gone...gone,
and I can't go on,
Bring back that lovin' feeling,
Whoa, that lovin' feeling
Bring back that lovin' feeling,
'Cause it's gone...gone...

It breaks my heart to read how so many of you have children still at home and are dealing with inappropriate advances and such. How the children's love and feelings for their parent has changed. How your love and feelings have changed ... as has mine.
I do still love my husband. I'm fortunate that he has not had the sexuality issues that many of you describe. I just can't feel the intimacy with him that we had for many years.
I hate this horrible disease and what it has done to us. And to all of you.

Pinki, while so many here are in stages of dismay, we are not. My husband, Carl, and I are still enjoying intimacy, kindness, and deep love. Not sure why we are so lucky, but after nine years, we are! Things have changed, but after all, we ARE getting older!

We will enjoy our 50th anniversary on Saturday and are still together because we like and love each other!

You are truly blessed. I pray for your continued relationship.

Our 31 year anniversary (of marriage) is this month. We lived together 4 years before we married - so we're at 35 years.
I treasure all the memories we've made together.

My hubby of 46 years has had PD for 7. We have not been intimate in over 5 years.
He is still my best friend and I know he loves me very deeply every time I come into a room and he looks into my eyes as I pass by him. His cognition is limited but his love and gratitude are shown every day.
