Mother in Law is Being Really Difficult
(Redway, California, USA)
She moved to the west coast so that we could take care of her. She is 87. She has rapidly had her dementia go down hill and she is escalating and accusing my husband and I of confusing her and she is having many many hallucinations.
Her room is often filled with people that she sees. Its Okay but I am having a hard time dealing with her accusing me of confusing her and of making her do things she doesn't want to do.
She recently told her friend that we told her she is dying. One day she seems relatively fine and the next day she can't talk or feed herself.
I got frustrated with her this afternoon and my husband accused me of escalating, which I don't feel I was, but her lashing out at either one of us is frustrating. I have been so kind and careful with her to make her transition here smooth. She is angry at her situation I think, but now my husband is ganging up on me too.
