A New Stage?
Mar 1, 2006
Hey Everyone,
It's Been A Few Days Since I Last Wrote Man I Have Been Busy. I Moved Mom Back Into Her House And Now Have A Wonderful Caregiver Staying With Her Everynight From 6pm Until 8am The Next Day. It Has Been A True Blessing To Finally Have A Bit Of Some 'own' Time Agian. Mom Seems To Be Better In Her Own Home And Has Forgotten That She Was Ever At Mine( One Year1/2). Wow That Really Tells You Something About This Disease... Anyway It's Been A Week Already And One Minute She Loves The Care Lady The Next She Begs Me To Make Her Go Home. Last Night When I Got Home From Work She Was Sitting On Her Couch Crying Uncontrollably And Begging To Just Die.... I Sat There With Her
And Held Her Hand While My Dh Whisked The Caregiver In The Other Room To Pay Her Without Mom's Knowledge. I Finally Left And She Does Better After Im Gone For Awhile??? Now She Is Began Causing Us Problems With Daytime Neighbors Etc. Who Try To Help Us With Her During The Day While We Work. She Crys All Afternoon And Has Become Very Restless From Around 1pm Until Night Time. She Swears That The Grandchildren Steal From Her Or The Neighbor And She Doesnt Even Have Anything For Them To Steal. She Is Still Hiding All Her Things And Then Forgetting She Ever Had Them Constantly. Today She Said The Fbi Was Watching Her House And Yesterday She Told Me Crying Hysterically That The Neighbor Told Her She Was Putting Her In The Nursing Home At Five O'clock.geez This Is So Frustrating...... I Think We Are Going To Have To Hire Full Time Care Around The Clock Now And That Means Her Money Wont Last Very Long. Lately She Seems More And More Depressed And Very Sad All The Time, Always Crying Wishing She Could Die And Go Home To Be With The Lord!!!!! I Feel So Sorry For Her But Nothing I Do Or Say Makes It Better. I Am Wondering If Possibly Some Of You Are Right That In A Nh They Have Less Decisions Etc. And So Things Are Easier For Them. If Anyone Has Any Suggestions Please Let Me Know ,im Doing All I Know How To For Now. I Still Spend At Least Two To Three Hours An Afternoon There And I Will Continue That But It Still Doesnt Seem To Be Working.......
