Im 51 years old with a 17 yr old son. My mother is 74 and lost her husband about 4 yrs ago. When he passed me and my son moved in with her as i didnt want to leave her alone. Well... its been years now she is getting harder and harder to even be around for me these days. Dont get me wrong, I love my mom but BOY its tough. She NEVER stops talking and I mean NEVER. She talks nonstop from the minute she gets up till she goes to bed. I am at my witts end really! I thought maybe here someone could relate. So glad to have found this site!!!
Believe me, I'm not making light of your problem. I know...........it sucks. Apart from a muzzle, I couldn't tell you what you can do.
I'm sorry it's frustrating for you - I know it must be. Unfortunately, there are very few remedies for it. There are some medications that may slow it down, but they come with side effects you may not want (like all meds do).
I know this probably isn't what you want to hear, but believe me, there's going to come a time when you will long to hear her voice - just one more time. Even if it's the constant chatter. The silence will seem deafening. Not saying you have to enjoy this constant stream of speech right now, but just saying....it won't always be this way.
