| It was actually developing for a year or two but I was too much of a dumbass to realize it. Last two months, it has really accelerated.
I'm lucky I work remotely (for now) and my brother is also here. But I gotta say, it is the toughest thing I ever had to face, especially the 24 hour care she needs, which me and my brother split.
But as others have said, you have to realize that's life and just keep going for as long as you can.
I think the loneliness and isolation my mom experienced during the covid epidemic played a huge role in her dementia. We were super careful never to expose her but as a result, she was very isolated and deteriorated mentally.
I definitely second guess myself about being so strict during covid.
