    After a particularly angry argument with my mom, I did a keyword search for alzheimers and living hell and found your posting. My mom has alzheimers and I feel like I’m in hell these days. Lately my life just plain sucks. Mom has a lot of hate in her, hates my sister-in-law and brother (guilt by association). She thinks everybody is stealing her stuff, which I could care less about. Sometimes I feel like jumping off a very high cliff and escaping from this hell that has become my life as a caregiver.

    I am so sorry that you have to go through such an ordeal to take care of your MIL. Can’t your husband do something about it. Or maybe have him take care of her for a while so you can take a break? Maybe you could try Adult Day Care or hire a caregiver to help you out.

    Hope this helps
