I'm feeling really bad. My mother is worse than I thought and I've been doing this all wrong. I need some advise about dementia.
Today my mother was finally diagnosed and she is worse than I thought and deteriorating rapidly. When she came to me 3 months ago she had the symtoms of stage one, but today was diagnosed with stage two and the beginning of three. I'm devistated. I just don't know what to do. I've been argueing with her because I didn't understand. Now I feel like crap. I made things worse. She just moved into her cute little trailer in my yard and now may not be able to enjoy it. I hate it for her. She told the doctor she hates me and I'm ruining her life, then comes home and spends the evening telling me how much she loves me. What do I expect now? They are ordering tests for her, so I guess I'll be fighting her to get gaurdianship. My husband just pulled the plug on her van and her new stove. I feel like a pile of shit, and scared I may walk in her steps.
