A family member keeps telling me I need to make the best of what I have and be grateful my mum is still alive.
When there is so little of my "mum" left, is it wrong that I am not grateful? I want to hang on to the memory of who she was so badly that I can't accept who she has become. the family member will not accept that my dad wants to leave my mum after 12 long years of trying so hard to make it work. Their relationship is not a marriage anymore but a carer/patient role. And he's on the verge of breaking. The family member doesn't understand why he wants to leave. I wonder if it's more just because she feels it might mean more involvement on her part. It was very easy to let my dad do it for all these years without much help from anyone else but with him gone she might need to be more involved?
