This is my first time here. in fact my first time on any sort of forum. I just want to know, does anyone else feel like they are walking on egg shells when caring for a parent that has Vascular Dementia. I feel like as soon as I sense a change in his mood, I feel like my stomach is in knots. sometimes, actually most times now, my dads aggression is too much. I know its not him, that its the disease, but still hurts when your dad can say hurtful things. sometimes I just want to walk out of the house and not return for a long time. make it someone else’s problem. I know that sounds bad.
