    :( Mmm. I know it's good Mum has a bond with her key worker but sad even though all I do, visiting, hospital visits and there are many, etc etc I'm not known as the daughter. Another sad day.

    So sad, know how you feel in a way. My mum has lived with me for over a year now and apart from a sitter for a couple of hours a week I am her main carer. I organise everything for her, our outings, appointments, including vet and grooming for her little dog. After all this time and organisation, mum still thinks its my brother doing all this!!

    :)Cheer up Sianey I have the same problem. My mum never speaks to me she says only one word and that is yes. Mum never acknowledges me. It is a long hard battle with hospital visits sorting things out and trying to do your best. Keep your chin up you are one of life's angels.:)

    I share your pain. After an extremely stressful fortnight with mum including 2 hospitals, GP, social workers and carers she told me yesterday that I always put my husband's family first :confused:. It really can be very hurtful so I feel for you.

    I cried quite a lot yesterday. It's my birthday today and I know she won't remember.

    Carer as daughter

    I don't know how to balloon up the sentence before a reply so I'm sorry for not replying individually.

    Thanks for bothering to reply it means a lot. I've gone back through previous pages and some threads are so good to read.

    I've never been close to my Mam and we were getting a better bond but she seems to enjoy the key workers company which I hate to admit I've taken to heart, not jealousy I aren't like that but sad nonetheless.

    I didn't visit today as it is a long drive there and back and had to do Mams garden back and front to make the house look lived in and I can't even tell her that's why I didn't go. :rolleyes:

    Thank you. Not really but it doesn't matter as I'm going for a nice long walk with my husband tomorrow.

    I hope you're ok. I don't have the best relationship with my mum either and I understand the conflicted emotions x
