I am the sole caregiver for my mother who is 92 and in bed most of the time. I don't mind the physical things but I am not coping well emotionally. At times she is coherent and knows what is going on and other times she is just terrible. I never do anything correctly, sometimes she won't eat but she gets upset if I ask her what she would like, etc. She tells me what to do, when to feed the dogs, when to go to bed, etc etc. Her dead relatives frequently come to see her at night, she sees people in the light fixture, there is a man in her bed, in her trash can, in her room, etc. She sometimes gets upset with me when I cannot see these people. When she is finished with her nap we are supposed to go see Grandma who died when I was a little girl. I need to know how to cope with these situations. If I try to explain anything, she says I am arguing with her. Thanks for listening, it is just a very bad day.
