I'm frustrated beyond belief. My mom is in ASL and is just recovering from a broken leg. She is beginning to walk with the help of PT and is fully capable of getting herself in/out of wheelchair. The source of my frustration is that she will ask to use a bed pan even though she is fully capable of using the toilet. It is more work for her to get in the bed and then on a bed pan than just to get on the toilet. She will even ask at the doctor's office to be put on a bed pan instead of going to the toilet. We have had to put a stop to her asking the ASL staff to sit with her while she uses the toilet and explained to her that they had others to take care of. She thinks it is "normal" to use the bathroom in front of company. I'm completely confused as to why she is now obsessed with using a bed pan and can't make sense of it. The ASL staff and I have agreed that it is no longer an option for her and they have stopped allowing her to use it. Has anyone else ever experienced this??
