I'm an only child. I am 60 yrs old & in the last yr I lost my 36 yr old son & 9 yrs ago my husband. My mom is bipolar & has moderate dementia. I drive 1 hr one way every other week & more when needed to ck on her. She never has offered a cent or a thing else. Last week I took three bags full of cookies & candy hoping it would last a while. This was on Tuesday, & today is Sunday. All she likes is sweets. I do make sure other things are in the house. She must eat night & day. I have 0 help with her because she has been so mean. She is on three powerful meds for bipolar & looks likes a picture of health her memory is just going.
