My mom has sleeping pills to get her to sleep but it is the opposite for her. Ive tried everything. Sometimes she is up for a couple of days. She plays possum all of the time but she is awake. Im working 12 days and my husband is sick and really he is the one taking care of her. My children also help ages 17 and 19 because we all live at home but she is litterally driving us all insane. She stays in her room all day sometimes locks the door. rearranges everything (her clothes etc.) she eats pretty good.Actually eats way too much but 1 time a day. She is running around talking to people. She has a dog that she loves to death but she will empty the refrigerator just to feed him. She has to be helped to change brush teeth things like that. She can go to bathroom on her own but lately she has been just using it in her pull ups. Then she doesnt tell no one so she will just undress and walk around naked. Then when we ask her why she wont tell us when she has an accident she says she had been yelling for hours but no one would come. I think Im just venting but omg does it ever just nsettle down for awhile. I was thinking of putting her in the nursing home just for the 100 days medicare allows but just when I was about to an alzheimers patient had just left nursing home and was missing for 2 days. Apparently he left unnoticed, gone for a few hours before someone noticed and was found 4 days later passed away in a ditch. I thought they were in the locked units and well I live in a small town so I just cant imagine that for my mmom. We only have 2 nursing homes and I guess both of them are under staffed. I didn't want to put my mom in there with what was going on and well I just needed a break and now I feel bad because I love her soooo much. I just really wish my siblings would visit or just take her for a week or someone other then my family to take care of her just for a minute. Even just for 3 days so I can collect my thoughts. But............ I'm tired and I feel my life passing by and I feel like Im confined to my home because of my mom. My whole family is anyways. We take breaks all of us. But never together as a family. I feel soo sad. I just want to be normal. I feel for my mom and I hate this disease because it took her away from me. Here it is labor day weekend and my plans are to be at home with my mom so my family can have a break because I am at work so much that is my break before my family goes insane.. We should be going somewhere on a picnic or something but we cant and Im angry............. Everyone wants to spend time with their families too.
