I've browsed through these pages before but this is the first time I have posted anything. Mum's not been well since Aug 03, she's 70 now. The Alzheimers Society were the first people to really listen to me and give me constructive ideas and help. Thank you so much! I'm really down tonight because yesterday Mum reacted aggressively (swearing ,raising her voice, trying to kick my hubby) to my husband over a trivial matter ( trivial to us that is). He has been a real rock to me, patient always with Mum, running round after her and comforting me when things get too much. I know Mum can't be reasoned with when she gets cross but for that instant he couldn't and I had to step in. My children ( 8 and 10) were there, my eldest sobbing, I tried real hard to comfort him, calm Mum down and ensure my husband was Ok. To make a long story short Mum has I think forgotten the incident, we of course haven't. I know these incidents will probably just get more frequent, I'm just so sad. Mum knows she isn't behaving as she would want to and just wants to alienate herself from everyone........she won't get rid of me but boy it's so hard.
