Briefly my mother has heart failure and suffers. Is homebound, agitated and depressed. She complains constantly about everything. Her health, issues are understandable, but also about her children. We are doing our best, but something is always broken and needs to be fixed, Then it is another thing. I wonder if this is a symptom of dementia or is normal. How do you deal and still be compassionate. She was never this way. She most often will not go to the doctor. yesterday she cancelled because it is too cold outside. She is taken by car. She was never this way in h her life. I am getting so exhausted. It usually ends in her anger at me.
