As I said my 95 year old Mom who has dementia wants to play cards with me every single day but there are times when I'm too busy doing something else (cooking, cleaning, laundry) and I don't feel like playing.
Or I just want a break and some alone time in my room.
My Mom doesn't understand about cooking, cleaning, etc. or that I'm tired (I understand how her dementia doesn't allow her to understand).
Yet I feel guilty if I don't play. I say to myself "what is she passes away tomorrow?"... I will feel terrible about myself.
