My husband died suddenly and unexpectedly five months ago. I am all alone, my kids live out of state, no relatives live nearby, I don't drive. I struggled to get myself to another state for a family reunion, trusting my family to understand and support me. Those who hadn't seen me for 12 years noticed I seemed different (distant and absentminded). Instead of realizing it was because I was in mourning and struggled to get there in the middle of a crisis, they decided of all things- that meant I had Alzheimer's. I'm not even a senior citizen. But instead of telling me that, they went behind my back and tried to convince my adult children of that, telling them they will have to eventually have me put away. I found out about it and spoke up for myself so they now realize they were wrong and most have apologized, but I still can't believe they did something so absurd and cruel. I also am afraid to ever trust them again. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this/what do you think?
