I am new to the site and yesterday I made a mistake and put my message into someone else's, I do apologise, but hope it is right this time. I have been caring for my 94yr old disabled mum who has Dementia. I have had no help from anyone in all these years and now find it is getting very hard to cope. I am ill myself the main problem being my crumbling discs, and I am in a lot of pain, a lot of the time, but I still care for mum in every way and put my ailments to the back of my mind. She has started to become aggressive, both verbally and physically, and as I said in my previous post, when I saw her with 2 pairs of glasses on and tried to help her she screamed out "stop hitting me, stop hitting me". Later she was trying to get out of the front door (I have to keep all doors locked here at all times) in her nighty and slippers with her purse in her hand saying she wanted to go to the shops. When I tried to turn her around on her zimmer frame to get her back to the room she again screamed out "stop hitting me, your are pushing me over, stop hitting me". I am finding it very hard to cope lately, does anyone have the same feeling as me?
