stroke and mild confusion
| Tom Musgrave
My wife suffered a stroke about 18 mounts ago. The only mental confusion is related to our home.. She is convinced there are two homes that are exactly alike and that we are living in one that belongs to some one else. There in no way to convince her other wise. All other mental abilities are functional.
