sorry to hear your mum is now in a home BUT sorry for her im not sorry for you as i know the strain you were under and think now you will have some respite from her demanding phonecalls!!
What a great guy G is! where can i find a man like him???????
My cat is here on my lap giving me the "eyeball" as i should be "stroking him" not typing!!!! you gotta love them!
Im just beginning to wonder if ill ever have a life again? mum went to paris to my sisters for 10days in may and it was scary just how happy i was? sounds awful but it reminded me of just how much stress she is as much as i love her my days of caring for her fulltime or coming to an end soon i hope, shes becoming more and more demanding and i have said some terrible things to her recently lucky she dosnt always remember! I dont feel like a daughter anymore i dont even feel like a carer i feel like im being taken the "piss out of" bigtime. They should change "dementia" to "manipulation disease".
Last few months she has bounced 4 cheques and even left us hungry as no money for food for 2days i had to borrow off my brother which killed me to have to ask him because usuallly i wouldnt ask him for the time of day!
"this too shall pass". oh good god i hope so!
Glad youre doing ok!
Mother has been diagnosed with vascular dementia along with the BPD and paranoia. It does seem to progress slowly at the beginning anyway. I suppose it depends on treatment and whatever brought it on in the first place.
I don't know how many of us manage to keep it together. I had three crazy paranoid phone calls every day during the winter and they nearly did me in. Stress levels will go down now that the moving is done - till the next time.
Happy you are back - take care ((((((hugs)))))
Hope your health is holding up..
How are you? hows your mum doing? any news im sure ive lots to catch up on!! mums getting worse she can just about walk but nothing major with her memory for now but then this horrible disease is so subtle we never know whats going to happen. i think vascular is slower to progress then just speeds up?
Im hoping things are going to change for me soon! my accident case should come up soon but for now same old "groundhog days".
dont know how im lasting without cracking up but i just have to hope things pick up you cant be miserable forever!!
