snatching some time for myself
I have been reading the 7 stages again and I think that mum is now 4-5,, Being so severely ill has resulted in her dementia progressing. She often doesn't remember our names, messes up her clothes if she dresses herself, needs help with bathroom and shower etc. can feed herself.
She is gathering and hiding things and recently hid wet underpants and pants in with all her clean clothes and i didnt find them for a while. in herself she is relatively content but I am just desperately wanting my old life back and chances of getting a NH placement soon are slim. as someone else mentioned, she can sound so good to other peoples because she just makes up stories when asked a question ..complete fabrications...
anyway I have decided to go out with my hubby to a late night movie after she has gone to bed. my (adult) kids will be here but she should sleep for most of the night.
I feel as though just at the time we were about be able to spend more time together and begin to enjoy trips away and a bit easier life. this happened. so the best i can do at the moment is to catch a late night movie.
anyway I am feeling like a wreck but just wanted to drop by
