I feel like I’m drowning. I dread going to see Mum but feel guilty that I do feel like that so I go, smile and try to be ok. I’m tearful and feel like I’m taking it out on my husband. I’ve never felt like this. I don’t know what to do to and the more I read about what’s happening to mum and what will happen, the more it’s dragging me down. I feel like I’m having to be strong for my dad and other family members. I feel like I’m being so self pitying.

You are not being self-pitying @Sunshine11!. Give yourself a break and don't go and visit for a few days. As for your family try to be as honest with them as you can.
It might also be a good idea not to read too much about what could happen with your mum. Everyone with dementia is different, and not everything you read about here will happen.
