On her bad days, I'm followed. I'm picked on, I'm asked 1000 questions, & MIL continuously puts down family members. Tells me they are thieves. Well, darnit when she's starting to say family members are thieves and they stole this and that I can't help it....I stick up for them when will I learn? Should I just nod my head and say yeah yeah yeah all day or should I stick up for them? To all of you who take care of dementia patients or family members do you ever stick up for your family members when they start getting in their moods?
