My aunt who is being cared for at home by her unmarried Son is having bouts of being really verbally horrible , this is the first time I have seen her like this and its been a shock. She seems to have taken a dislike to my 7 year old daughter and continually snipes at her and also me, yet is.so loving, overly to my 2 yr old son. She and my cousin come to dinner at mine on Sundays and I am dreading it, I think I handled it wrong as I kind of berated her for this. I feel as though she is jealous of ny daughters time with me as she is like this to my mum also when she stays with me and is at my home. This is an early diagnosis of dementia and my aunt has only her son and myself in her family. I feel selfish not being understanding straight away . I spend every wednesday at hers with her, I take her shopping which is a nightmare, she keeps asking when I leave Will I be comin tomorrow and then I end up saying yes as feel guilty. Yesterday she said no one loves or does anything for her and got so nasty to me and her son and said so many spiteful untrue things, when I left I was in tears I feel so sorry for my cousin as he said she is like this to him often, it's just the first time I have seen for myself, I almost felt like my presence is making her worse but she always wants me there. Then turns on me. Sorry for long post, trying to get it all out.anyhow any advice will be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
