Happy news - mom can see someone next week for an evaluation! It's a miracle!
Question - should mom go by herself? I'm afraid that she won't remember important things to share with the doctor, and that she won't remember much about the appointment to share with me and sis. Both will make the visit useless. She has longstanding issues with depression and anxiety, and perhaps a personality disorder as well. She was abusive when we were kids. And still has moments now.
1. send some information to doctor ahead of time
2. introduce myself to doctor then excuse myself
3. maybe come back in at end?
Or maybe the doctor has a way of dealing with this? She's part of a geriatric practice.
What's worked for other people in this situation? thanks in advance
