My mother was diagnosed with terminal peridium/ovarian cancer. She has my baby sister caring for her...my sister gave up her job to be caregiver. My dad is a mess and can't handle it. Mom was really nice to me a few weeks back. But now when I went in to help my sister get mom out of her urine soaked pjs she yelled at me and one other sister as well as my baby sister. But I noticed when I went to help my mom she told me to get the hell out of her house. I said mother I love you and want to help you. She yelled back that she wasn't my mother and that she didn't love me. Told all of us she would she all of us! I know cancer does this to many patients. But, the next day she said she knew that she said some horrible things to me and the rest. No apologies.. just an oh well attitude. She seems angrier with me. We have had our Rocky relationships... but before she got this bad we made up for it all and was loving towards me. I am confused because someone mentioned my little brother's name and she perked up like he was the best thing since sliced bread. The same brother that walked out on her and my dad over a fight about her falling which she denied. It was this past Xmas..he has visited since then. I just don't know why I am a bigger target of her anger??
