Feeling Hopeless My mother is 84 years old . I live very close to her and so I have helped with shopping, doctors appointments etc. We have never been particularly close but since she was diagnosed a year ago she has become increasingly verbally agressive towards me and my husband. She rings me constantly accusing me of stealing her pots and pans and various other things and treats me like a naughty child! I have two brothers who are not local but do their best to help and in her eyes they can do no wrong! My husband is very angry about her attitude and so I no longer involve him. She genuinely belives that one or both of us is breaking into her house and moving things around or tidying things or stealing. I feel so sorry for her as it must be so frightening but I am tired of the arguments and it is hard to keep cool with her. I would love to take her out or visit more often but she makes it so difficult. My 21 year old son was seriously ill with meningitis two years ago and is now in a wheelchair and so I'm afraid my primary loyalty is with him. I don't know how to proceed with my mother - physically she copes well but for how long? Does anyone else have a similar story?
