Recently starting dating an awesoem girl who is caring for her mom. From what I know so far, her mom had Multiple myeloma but caught it in time. She went through chemo and was put of resputol (I think I spelled it right). The meds gave her really bad symptoms so her daughter (the caretaker and my girlfriend in question) decided to take her off the meds and go a more natural / holistic route.
My girlfriend has had a rough time with her mom always being the one who did everything, she finds herself know relying on her daughter to do everything. For the most part she is good, but has had some moments recently that has scared her daughter. The mom is very clingy, doesn't want to be left alone, has random outburst thinking they are going broke or someone is trying to break into the house. At first we thought it was because I came into the picture and mom felt threatened. But we are starting to see that it is a little more than that.
My girl is very concerned and is not sure what to think, if this is stress related, dementia, or something related to stopping the meds and taking herbal remedies. I have asked my girl to write up an email about the whole situation which I will post on here once she gets it to me, but was wondering if you all could help me help my girl to help her mom. I told her today that it might be time for conventional medicine or counseling and just want to try to help any way that I can since mom comes with the package deal of dating this girl (which I am all cool with). Help friends. Thanks in advance and I will post more as soon as I can but advice and questions are welcomed!!!
