Mother keeps falling, refuses to go to hospital. What can I do?
So... my mother is not exactly good at taking her medication as prescribed. All of my efforts to get her not to take too much are for naught. She is also dealing with a morphine addiction, and she's currently unable to get any. So she's taking twice/three times her night meds so she can sleep through withdrawal. Except she's not sleeping.
As of right now, she has fallen; I mean completely, just, WHUMP, 5 times since yesterday. She gets out of bed to go to the bathroom and loses control of her arms and legs. She can usually get on her hands and knees but that's it. I've had to physically drag/carry her back to bed all 5 times.
Earlier today, she literally just laid on the floor and yelled, "Help". She couldn't even get onto her knees.
She will not go to the ER. She is frail. She is 5'10 and ~110 pounds. For all we know, she's broken something, but she just told me, "Get that idea out of your head, I'm not going anywhere."
What can I do? I didn't get any sleep last night because of the surge of adrenaline that came from having to drag dead weight back to bed, and I know the same will happen tonight. But she doesn't want to do anything because she's presumably getting more morphine tomorrow, which is the only thing in the world she cares about (except for making my life miserable).
