Hi, I am living with my mother in law wo has dementia. She has had dementia for 10 years now and lives with my husband and I. Her mood changes daily and I quite honestly feel like she resents me being around even though she is living in my home, she won't speak to me, shouts at me sometimes and refuses to do anything I am trying to help her with.
The rest of my husbands family don't even come to see her never mind lend a hand but are quick to dicate when we should have a break and actually begrudged us having time alone after getting married last year, I feel like I am burdening my family with my problems and have no one to talk to, even my husband doesnt understand because it is his mum and he understands her more than I do. She definately treats me differently when he is not around and has left me in tears twice in the past week while I have been trying to help her.
Is anyone in a similar situation?
