question-mark-460869_640Here I am, hiding from everyone. Everyone thinks I am working out of town and all I can think of is YAY!!!!! I DO NOT WANT TO ANSWER ONE PHONE CALL.

I feel exhausted, sad, anxious, and mainly angry. My mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in August. Overall if you look at her you would never know. She cooks, bathes, cleans and even goes to the grocery. Its the memory loss and the vicious words she says to me. the accusations of "robbing her money."

I know what you are going to say, it's not her talking, she doesn't know what she is saying. Ya, tell that to my wounded heart. I feel like my best friend has just turned on me. Like my hang out buddy no longer trusts the one child who has shielded, bought, taken and cared for her fully.

I feel devastated. So here I am, hiding. crying, Silent questions to God, to the universe: WHY???? WHY?/????
