My 88 yo mother has become difficult. When I was growing up she was really sweet. For the last 20 years she has become more and more difficult. Yesterday at the senior center she berated me during the entire meal with all kinds of criticisms.
My digestion shut down. Then I got a migraine headache which I still have. I am 63 yo. Mother is very cranky. She repeats herself over and over again none stop. She lives by herself in a lovely home. Caregivers are there 40 hrs per week.
She has plenty of money. Yet she dresses very poorly. Her clothes are stained and dirty. Sister is in charge and there isn't anything I can do about a thing. Yet I am expected to take Mom places. Yesterday was the last straw. Being berated none stop while I ate. Mom has dementia.
Also my husband has dementia. So my life is difficult. He blurts out things in a mean way. Says I haven't earned the right to use his last name that I will have to use my maiden name. Etc. things like that.
Please tell me what to do about these things.
