One of the new things we have been dealing with are the moods. As in, bad ones. They come on randomly most of the time. Once my grandmother accused me of "deliberately making trouble" because I turned off the light in a room no one was in. A lot of times she is oblivious and can't always understand that she can't have something right away, or that she can't go outside because it is raining. Today we had a lot of those issues and finally she told me (while I was running her bath and getting her bed ready) that I'm awful to her and that i've been terrible all day. I got upset and because I was tired and had been dealing with this all day I told her that I'm doing my best but that doesn't seem to be enough for her. She just kept at it, saying I'm awful and crabby (and I probably was crabby). I told her that I do a lot to help her, all day and in the night too but she didn't want to hear it or couldn't understand. She finally said, in a nasty sarcastic voice that if it was too hard for me I didn't have to live here. Part of me knows she's just old and also has a horrible thing happening to her. The other part of me is so tired out and tired of being accused of being a bad person that I do just want to give up. I have heard that sometimes people like this do lash out, so I was wondering how others deal with it without just quitting?? Thanks and hugs to all.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
