I've been caring for my mother all my life.

She's slowly falling deeper into dementia and I don't know what to do. She is lashing out and screaming at me and this keep happening. I feel like I am slowly going crazy because of it.

I don't know what I can do. She's also my source of housing and pretty much everything else. I don't know how I could leave.

I just feel like I am losing it.

OP, some people are mentioning a nursing home but beware this is VERY VERY expensive keep in mind that she could live a bunch more years. Every month costs anywhere from 2 to 6 grand. Also it is general not covered by insurgence.
