My mom died July 29 of this year. She had Parkinson's disease and arthritis, and slowly declined over the last 6 years, with the last 6 months of her life being the most difficult. I was her caregiver through all of it. At the end I even had to spoon feed her. However, thoughts of her illness aren't there, and I find myself thinking about happier, healthier times. What I can't deal with are insensitive comments. I have had people say to me "You must be so relieved. Now you can have a life" and things along those lines. How dare they call my mother's death a relief, and believe me I want to let them have it. Has anyone else ever dealt with insensitive comments and what did you say in response?
