Tomorrow is Monday. I dread it so much, because Mondays are always my mother's worst days. My mother's dementia is something I can't find anything about. It cycles. One day it is like she acts like Stage 6 and holding onto life by a thread. The next day she acts like Stage 3-4 and acts pretty normal for a woman with dementia. It has gotten to be predictable, cycling in severity on each day. Mondays are the worst. Tuesdays okay. Wednesdays bad. Thursdays okay, Fridays bad. Saturdays okay. Sundays are the only days that are off-schedule. We go to church on Sunday, so it is an up day. Then comes Monday.
What is going on? Doctors don't pay much attention when I ask. They don't know. I can't find anything about dementia cycling in severity so regularly as this. Does anyone else out there go through this or have any clues as to what might be going on? It would be nice to find out if there is some help for it, so I wouldn't dread MWF so much.
