Hi Sheri,
I'm so sorry that you and your husband have to face AD at such a young age. It's bad enough when AD presents itself in people's 80s!
You are right in that we all have to fill the void in some way. I think emotional eating is natural to most of us. I hope you can find some support for younger spouses. Have you tried the Well Spouse Association? It's at www.wellspouse.org.
You should find people there who can relate to your young spouse status.
Blessings to you and your family.

It is not that feel I deserve it. In my case it is my spouse that has Alzheimer's, and being only 54, myself, the lack of emotional connection and intimacy is why tend to turn to food. I have not found a different way to replace that intimacy and emotional connection. Spending time with other people talking does not help.
