I'm Going to Go Crazy Soon Living Here
by Daughter Slave
Somehow my life has gotten so messed up.
It is all about taking care of an Alzheimer's mother, who is ungrateful, hostile, oblivious to reality.
I thought I would try to keep her out of the memory care unit at a facility as long as I could. But lately she is screaming at me to get out of her house, and just being mean and hostile most of the time.
I am pretty much a slave from dawn to dark on her behalf every day for years now. It's ironic because I think I'm going to end up being stabbed in the back somehow despite all my selfless caring. Why is that I wonder.
Maybe tomorrow I'll call and put her on a waiting list for the facility, it has gotten to the point where we are both angry much of the time.
I know I'll feel terrible when she is in a facility, but how much abuse can I take?
