My mother became jaundice in early November. Along with the jaundice came pale stools, dark urine and a sketchy appetite. Any advice?
She absolutely refuses to see a doctor, even a home visit doctor. At times she is so out of it too. Because if her stubborness, I started her on Tumeric, Milk thistle and other vitamins. She even stopped smoking oddly enough. The herbal protocol seemed to help a bit as her stools and urine actually returned to normal although the jaundice is still there. But now the last few days she barely eats, refuses the vitamins claiming she has a difficult time swallowing and keeps saying that everything just “lays on her stomach” I cook, clean, take care of the animals, quit my job, about to lose my car, go in massive credit card debt and I’m ready for a nervous breakdown. On top of all this, I’m fairly newly married and my husband is getting zero attention. I have literally no family but for a few relatives in Florida and Im in NY. I’ve never been so scared. Her good spirits are there and she talks about doing a lot of things “as soon as she gets better” but how is she gonna get better if she’s not proactively doing anything to try. I love my mom so much and this is killing me.
