I get no support from my sister because she said she doesn't want to hear negativity.
My mom is 88 with dementia/Alzheimer's. My dad is 93 and just starting to get forgetful. I go there every night to give her Seroquel and get ready for bed. She was very tired and shaky tonight. Put her in bed and I couldn't get her adjusted right and said I pushed her. She started yelling at me and crying then my dad started yelling at me. He said I yelled at her and I told him that it was ok when he yelled at her because he has no patience. He told me to get out and started banging my mother's walker and the kitchen chair and screamed for me to get out. My mother then started to get out of bed to yell at him and I tried to tell him that I wanted her to stay in bed. I was at my breaking point and as I was leaving said he was a mean old man. After I locked the screen door he came over and slammed the inside door shut. I was crying and shaking driving home. I called one of my mother's caregivers and asked her to call them because I was worried. She texted me that he said they were calm and fine. I think they're tired of me since they see me every night and about 5-6 hours every Saturday. My sister goes on Sunday for all of 3-4 hours. I quit trying to share info with her because she doesn't act like she cares. I do their meds, bills, paperwork, trips to labs and Drs appt and grocery shop for them. She went on a vacation last week and didn't tell me. I get no support from her because she said she doesn't want to hear negativity. My son and husband are seeing finally what this is doing to me. I don't know where to turn sometimes. I get no enjoyment from anything because I know I have to stop by 7 to go there. I will feel guilty if I get someone to go there at night. And I feel like my sister hates me. We need to be on the same page. We are the only two children. I am becoming very bitter towards her. I guess I'm just venting. anyone else relate?
