I took my mom to a geriatric doctor last month and a cardiologist last week because she was due for her 6 month check-up. These are new doctors I found because she recently moved near me. Well it has been a miserable experience! She becomes pretty nasty with the doctors saying she's lived this long (92) and that it is God's will what happens to her. She refused to get a physical with the geriatric doctor, but she did get tested at the cardiologist's office. Well I think the report with a long list of things that are in need of attention, has sent her into a downward spiral mentally. I told her it was for preventative care so that if the doctor needs to change her meds, it could be helpful to continue with her quality of life. She would prefer to bury her head in the sand and not know. Well we went out to eat after her appointment and her whole mood changed. It was actually ok going to the doctor. Then suddenly out of the blue, she started acting like a 5-year-old arguing with me, then said if I continue to argue with her that she would scream, and this was in a restaurant. I told her that she had a stroke many years ago because she never checked her blood pressure nor ever went to a doctor. Apparently, this is a risk that she still has, but I'm afraid it could be worse, and I'm telling her that her whole way of life could change. Should I just pretend she's fine and be done with it?
