I ask the nurse who runs the assisted living to call me, (or I leave a note asking if my mother's mental state is affected), but I get no response at all. It's very upsetting that nobody will talk to me about her personality changes & occasional cruelty to me. I don't know if this is typical, or caused by depression (or side effects of a pill?) So I feel unsure about visiting again, since it takes me 3 days to recover from her episodes, (which are not predictable). I can't go on like this, but I'm the only one she has left. Any ideas? I'm desperate. Thanks.
