    Don't feel bad Grahamstown. Being a carer is hard but you don't get to clock off at the end of a shift and go home to unwind. We learn 'on the job' and we all make mistakes/respond to situations that in hindsight we could have handled better. That is why I picked my tagline as it sums up my family's continuing experience with dementia and looking after Mum.

    Dear @Grahamstown - my husband too can’t cope if I am angry - and really it’s not anger so much as frustration - but I have improved over this journey of only 8 months so far - I am getting better and he seems more manageable - my OH had D for a year or 2 before I recognised it - but now that I understand his problems I am more Accommodating - and his poor memory is an assset !! Each day is a new start. Look at it that was - start each day with a clean slate :):p !!
