Taking care of my 77 yr old mother in law with this disease.. it is very hard.. me and her son have been married for 7 months. Sometimes i think she hates my guts. I give her her meds cause she double dosed one day and got real sick. I know she doesnt hate me. She went from taking care of herself to me driving her around and fixing her meals. She wont get in the shower to clean herself so 3 times a week i have to get her in the shower for a good scrub down.. i love her so much! We sometimes have words but i keep it positive. She tells folks i ditch her and leave her all alone.. she tells me she doesnt love me and to quit worrying about her.. but as i said i just remind her of what disease she has and assure her i love her no matter what. She can be quite hateful sometimes taking my things and cutting them up.. but oh well
