My husband of ten years left me three years ago for his secretary and they have a baby together.

I can’t move on with my life while my mother constantly asks me about him.

I’ve told her a thousand times we are not together but she forgets.

I’m 42 and have two little boys. My ex is 45. We have started divorce proceedings.

I visit my mum in her care home every day and I always leave in tears when she asks why my husband isn’t with me.

DEIDRE SAYS: It’s tough that your mother doesn’t understand, but have a reminder up permanently in her room – put a photo-graph in a frame of you and your boys and write a clear note saying you and your husband are separated.

Your mum can then look at the picture at times when she gets confused about the situation.

My e-leaflet Moving On will help and you can find support at Dementia UK (dementiauk.org, 0800 888 6678).
