I am caring for my 93 year old mother solo in an apartment we share but I have been caring for her many years. She has mild dementia and I am wondering if this is the reason she ignores me if I tell her I'm not feeling well and that she will have to wait a while longer for me to wait on her. She won't acknowledge my feelings and will come back at me with "my back hurts" or "I don't feel good either." You would think out of human compassion, she would at least acknowledge that I'm not well and patiently wait for me to help her. Some days I feel so unappreciated but I am trying to overlook her flaws and attribute it to her dementia. Is this apathetic attitude age related or am I too sensitive?
