My mom has always been my best friend and cheerleader, but at 84 she has been declining in mental and physical health the past year. I miss being able to talk to her about my life and hers and just the normal life events we all have. She doesn't really carry on a conversation anymore, just answers questions if you ask her. It's really upsetting and sad for me. My brother lives with her and I also have 3 other sisters. Maybe I need to talk to them about how I feel and see if they feel the same way. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
