I'm lost again....

Started by

Found out mom broke her toe...no one knows how.
She won't use the cane or walker that had been suggested because she said she didn't do it.
X-ray shows broken bone from 7-10 ago!!
I lost it yesterday and started arguing with her like I did before ALZ...I thought I had a stroke!!
Better today,but worried I'll forget the "rules" again!#just agree

Maybe she should be checked for peripheral neuropathy. If she is losing sensation in her feet, she could break a toe and not know it happened. When it affects the hands, the patient could cut a finger or scald it and not feel the pain.

Keep the conversation going (or start a new one)
