Should I be worried about my husband's recent obsession with is own body?
My husband has post traumatic dementia from 2 severe head injuries. He is still able to do quite a few things, but is getting quite obsessed with his own body. I will find him standing in front of a mirror just looking and handling his body parts. When he sees me he stops. Do I need to be worried about this?
I'm sure this behavior is shocking and uncomfortable for you. It more than likely is a part of his dementia process. As long as he isn't causing anyone harm, he is OK. It's when others' safety is compromised that this is not good. We are all sexual beings and those needs and desires still need to be filled, someway...
