Ive been trying to get through to my mom I need more than 3 hours a week off from taking care of my grandmother who has sun downers and dementia. I've gotten to the point when it is a bad moment with her that I take to biting myself to prevent me litterly telling her way to put it. I know it is the disease doing this to her. But I need more breaks. How do I get it through my moms head that 3 hours is not enough time off? During the bad moments, my grandmother threatens to kill myself or herself. Then after about
an hour, she has utterly no memory of it happening. It is her disease, I know it. How can I vent out my frustrations more healthy? I have tried locking myself in my room but then she just pounds and pounds and pounds on the door, screaming, yelling, cussing, threatening. This happens about
once a week to where it gets severe.
