I do love my Mum, and will do anything for her in the situation we find ourselves, but I also 'hate' her, feeling a lot of resentment at times. She in turn loves me, and would never let me down, and would protect me from all ills and never sya anyting hurtful toward me. Tonight, after weeks and weeks of being unable to tell her, I have finally done it. I ran her a bath at my house and then told her that due to her memory problems, she is now forgetting when she last bathed. And in the nicest way that I could, that she badly needed an all over wash. She absolutely insisted that she did take regular baths, just as always, but she got in the bath nevertheless, and did what I requested. I felt absolutely awful. She has now taken herself off to bed, not talking to me and I feel like shouting and screaming ......I want to run away somewhere where I don;t have to do these horrible things ....thanks for listening.
