My mom is diabetic and is slowly committing suicide by food.
She lost her husband and mother within a few months of each other My mom was her moms caregiver and she suffered from dementia. In November she moved in with my oldest sister who has health issues herself and is trying to cope with this. She gets up at night and makes all kinds of food and eats like it is going out of style. She hides food in her room. My sister asked her how much she weighed and she said, "That she had not gained any weight." Which is not true, she did not have a big gut when she moved in but now she does. In April she had what was thought of a stroke but her doctor said that it might have been a migraine. She lost her speech and it was days before she regained it back. My sister said that she had another one this week. With the diabetes she does not check her insulin levels. My sister is at a loss as what to do. She does not want to watch her kill herself.
