Mom wants to "go home", she sold her house 15+ years ago.
She wants to know where her furniture went? Where did the money go? Needs to call "home" to check on the dogs (from 60 years ago). My private time was after she went to bed - now she is up time and time again - "are the doors locked?" - been over a week since she showered. She sad, mean - I know it's a disease, but I cannot help myself repeating the same things over and over again. She doesn't remember eating. Paranoia is rampant. Again, no shower in over a week - and vehemently will not take a shower. I work out of my home (out of necessity, not choice) - I'm exhausted and don't know what to do next. I find myself arguing/preaching - same things over and over. I KNOW "it's the disease" ...but so much easier said than done. Exhausted. Thank you for listening.
