I might go insane....

Sunday, August 12, 2012

My granny's Alzheimer's is making me crazy. I can't handle it. I cracked today and kept screaming at her. I was so mad that she was getting in my face. Now I am just angry and quiet. I am sooo upset and angry. I might be going insane.

    Don't worry about it. You are only human.
    We have days like this and it is normal and frustrating.
    You have to get back on track and do the best you can.
    If it is too much then you need a rest away from her.
    She might need to go into a home and that is ok.
    Take care of yourself.

    You need to emoticon & walk away as soon as you feel like exploding, this is not good for either one of you. Go to the bath room shut the door & splash cold water on your face, like Tame said take some real deep breaths.Both my Aunts had this awful disease they both since passed away,In the very darkness of her mind for only seconds she knows this is not who she really is.My one Aunt no longer knew who her husband or children were.It is awful frustrating to see someone you love go through this, I feel for you I know your pain & hurt.. Your not going insane your soul & heart are hurting.. I am going to pray for you that Our Lord will calm your anxious heart while you are taking care of your Grandmother.

    I know all to well how that's not an easy task. My mother-in-law has the disease. I was taken care of her in between working nights. As it progressively got worse my husband family decided it was best to put her in a nursing home.

    Hey, this too will pass. It's ok to be angry. This situation is probably incredibly frustrating for the both of you. Remember to breathe (it works! ten counts in and out) and know that this will pass. Come onto Sparkpeople to vent when you need to. We're here for you. emoticon
