My mother has always had a nasty streak. I have noticed of late that she can't remember where she puts things & thinks someone is coming into her house and stealing her jewelry and having a hard time keeping finances straight. Her nastiness is worse at night and she often doesn't remember it the next day. She is nasty to my husband and he and I fight quite frequently. He says he has had enough and is ready to leave. She has not been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. my Dad has Alzheimer's. Parkinson's and I go there morning and night to get him up and put him to bed. She has a hard time accepting Dad's problems let alone facing she may have Alzheimer's. I haven't brought it up because when her dr. Asked her questions, she felt I had said something to her which I had not. I am at a loss. I do not want to loose my husband but feel a sense of responsibility to them they have no friends as dad got sick shortly after they moved here. My only sister lives out of state and is not around to help. My mother also refuses to bring in help. Do you think she is in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's? What can I do to help make my relationship more solid with my husband without feeling guilty that I am abandoning my parents!
