Parent cannot be reasoned with. Aging parent gets agitated against caregiver. The nurse tested her blood sugar level and it was under 200. Fifteen minutes later she wanted me to give her personal diabetic meter to test her blood in the hospital again. I told her the kit is at home. She got angry that I left it home and wondered why did I leave it home. I explained to her that she did not need her kit since the nursing staff is testing her blood sugar levels. I ended up asking the nurse to check her blood again just to calm her down. Some how I am the villain for leaving her blood meter kit at home. I understand it is the cancer, but it still hurts. Trying to reason with her only gets her more upset. But then when I get quiet, she get even more upset because she believes that I am now mad at her. How should I react and cope with this behavior? I been there everyday for her and sometimes it seems she always down on me. She wants to drop everything to be there, but when I am there she attacks.
