My MIL has always had a mean,critical personality all her life. Now that she has dementia its not always easy to tell when her nasty remarks are the illness talking or her normal self. I believe I'm entitled to be hurt or mad when it's not her illness doing this. I don't want her using dementia for an excuse to hurt people. Many of her family members and friends have even stopped visiting because of this.Now more than ever I'm the one who gets treated badly by her because everyone else keeps their distance from her for the most part. Am I suppose to excuse all her bad behavior all the time, even when she's not having dementia thoughts all the time?
