Sometimes, I become frustrated and impatient with my parent. I talk snappy and quick talking and repeat myself. I tell my parent to stop moving the channel changer, phone-book or certain objects around and just leave it in its original place so I can find them. My parent keeps rearranging things and hiding stuff but I know I'm asking to much since they have the first stages of Dementia they will forget what I even said, but sometimes my parent remembers and it surprises me. The dementia fluctuates. Anyways I always end up apologizing and give a hug. I even say I hope you forgive me I'm sorry for getting impateint and frustrated with you. Its the guilt that eats me up and I have a hard time with it.
