I have always been a kind, compassionate person. But, lately, I am just the most impatient person. I am so tired of hearing the same things over and over and over. I have cruel responses in my head, but do my best to not let those come out of my mouth. Funny thing is, if I see someone in public who obviously has dementia, I AM kind to them. It's just home with Mom that I'm feeling this way. I have been in touch with the Alz. Assoc., but to date, have not really received much help. They came for a quick assessment, but nothing since. At any rate, I guess I just wonder how others deal with these feelings. I don't want to be like this, and I realize it is probably burn-out.
