This is a sincere question and I hope someone can advise me. My MIL has Alzheimers and I know "it's the disease." BUT I can tell that she knows she is giving me the silent treatment and she smirks when I ask her what I've done to upset her. I know that she knows what she is doing because she will snap right out of it if a guest shows up. She also refuses to respond when I ask her why she is not speaking to me. I can write this off to moodiness but my MIL has a long history of giving people the silent treatment and she is still quite the expert. Yes, I take it personally. I've devoted my whole home and life to caring for her.
Sorry, just having a bad day..........at least the dog likes me.
