Yes, he is acting like he can't do anything. I think he's faking it.
Mom has dementia.
Neither one has taken the time out to get any kind of legal paperwork done.
I had an advance directive printed out for my mom and she wouldn't sign it. She said that it sounded like they were saying she was dying.
I have been going around and around in circles with this for the past couple of yrs.
Some Dr. took it upon himself to put incorrect information in my step dad's medical file. This has been causing problems. They put in the file that he has Parkinson's.
He's never been tested or treated for this. No meds have ever been given to him for this condition.
I have taken many prescriptions out of both of their daily regiments. My mom was taking 15 different pills; She didn't know what they were or what she was taking them for. Same with my dad. He was taking around 20 different pills.
He was taking pills for constipation and then turn around and take pills for diarrhea. A couple of blood thinners, a few pills for acid indigestion.
Three different kinds of cream for pain. He was on Ropinirole, Gabapentin, and Abilify.
These three meds made him shake really bad. I don't know how long they have been taking all these meds, but they have effected both my parents.
I really need to get all the legal papers done. I hope there is help for me. There is more to say, later.
