was waiting so long for a break from my mum and today she went into respite it was very tough I feel like crap and am very down?? you see ive never been to a NH before just don't ask me what I expected I don't know but my mum was the youngest one there they all had white hair my mums is dark!! Oh I just didn't think they would be so old and motionless??
I cried leaving her, hugged her told her I loved her saddest day of my life maybe the reality is kicking in and its only now I realize shes old and ill and this may be where it ends.
Just very down and sad really thought id just leave her there and run but no its a different story when its real.
Home is wonderful staff etc... just thought the people would be mums age and mobile my mums 74 they all seemed about 90s Oh I know shell be fine and very well looked after.
I don't know cried all the way home! Please tell me some of you have experienced this?
