My Mom's sister is not a position to see my Mother's illness or situation, and tells people that my mother is fine. Her daughter gives me cruel, uncaring un-solicited advice via email.
I have stopped opening emails from my cousin. And, I do not talk to my aunt. But hearing my Mom talk to her on the phone negatively about me, just hurts. I typically try to ignore and tune it out but tonight it was particularly bad, and I had to call to give my side of the story, which is CRAZY because with Dementia it's the nature of the beast. My Mom would be in a nursing home if it were not for me moving her to care for her. Tired and frustrated....just a bad day I hope. Tomorrow I plan on getting up early and going out all day (will try a coffee shop, or just walking down town) while my brother comes over to (hopefully) take Mom out.
It might sound crazy, but I have to get up and out early, before she wakes up so I don't get engaged in the drama of Dementia. Any thoughts or tips would be greatly appreciated.
