She has gotten worse in the last two years. This year was particularly stressful because my father became ill and it has been a long recovery. He is finally doing much better, and thankfully he does not have dementia, but it is hard on him spending so much time with my mother. I go over every day for several hours, but it even gets to me. Has anyone out there experienced this situation? I love both my parents, but I don't even want to be around my mother most of the time and it makes me feel very guilty.
