Dementia has got to be one of the most cruel diseases around. It’s reduced my dad from a very intelligent & articulate man to one that lashes out (verbally and physically), cries and hard to manage. It escalates at night turning bedtime into a nightmarish situation. I don’t understand his mind. He seems fine during the day and during the night – this other person comes out. My sister bears the brunt of this. I’m able to go home and wallow in guilt.
