Non support from spouse.

Started by

I had to take care of my mother during her last stages of dementia. As her condition became worsened I had to spend more time with her. Due to finances my brother and I had to provide her between us and home health aides. The more I had to stay the more if an attitude my husband got. It was horrible.


Peachie, I think there are many of us that have been in that position with a spouse/sig other, be it the husband or wife. They resent the time we use to help with our parent. If it was their own parents, well that would be different.

To me it is an eye opener for when one of us becomes ill as to how will our spouse/sig other take care of us.
And how are things for you now, Peachie?
