My mother was diagnosed with front temporal lobe dementia last year, and I am her sole carer. My father died last year. My sister lives in another country. My mother has a brother and sister. The brother never really bothered much anyway. The sister however was really close, but since my father died that seems to have disappeared too. So that just leaves me. As we are currently in lockdown I am here all day long. My mother has reverted to the role of a child, always asking what she should do. She can't work anything electrical so she can't cook, clean,mow lawns, turn the tv on or off etc. Her speech is badly affected and there is virtually no conversation anymore, just a guessing game of what she is trying to say. My sister told me once that I should expect to be the carer as I didn't have a house of my own, and I'd enjoyed cheap rent for years. My sister has a house a husband and 2 children. This makes me feel that I've been chosen as the sacrificial sister so that she can have a life. I'll admit to wanting to punch her when she said that to me, but what's the point. I just feel as if my life is slipping away. I try to do the best for my mother, but all I can see ahead is her getting worse, and me being left to deal with it on my own.
