My mom had a stroke and now is not all there cognitively. My dad died of cancer 5 years ago and my mom doesn’t remember this tragedy now.
In fact ALL of my relatives are alive in her mind. We have dinner parties for them all the time here. At first I tried to gently explain. But when I told her that my grandmother died many years ago she bawled and was unconsolable. So of course I never told her about my dad. But the lie has been he is at training for work. Now though I will find her crying and the reason is that she thinks my dad doesn’t love her anymore because he has been gone so long and any man that stays away is never coming back.
It is breaking my heart.
So any suggestions on new lies? Or what you have done?
