The stress of looking after mum has now taken its toll on me.
On tuesday I spent the whole morning cleaning the whole house and stressed out with the amount of dirty washing that mum was flinging around the place anyway I later went shopping and a break came back 2 hrs later and the house was a mess again.
I sat down and cried then I got pins and needles in my left arm then my face went all tingly?
I called my brother and ended up in Emergency all night waiting to be checked out.
After several hours and blood tests they ordered a CT scan then the shock of my life id had a TIA (mini stroke)?
I am still trying to come to terms with this and am still in shock im only 47 I have to go to hospital next week now for tests and take aspirin for life.
How did I get here how has this come to this? Im so scared for my life now as a second stroke is highly likely.
My family asked what did the doc say to do I said Fck what the doc said mum needs to go into home I cannot do this anymore and put the phone down NOTHING SINCE?
Im here now TRYING to take it easy and come to terms with whats happened and mum demanding as ever and stressing me out im done I will start to look for a NH asap
Im sorry to depress yee all but this is what comes from trying to care for a dementia parent with no support.
Has anyone ever had a mini stroke? Of course ive stopped smoking and will have to take care of myself now.
So scared about being able to cope now living with mum?
So down and so fed up really thought things were going to go well for me this year?
