Re: Hi it's the newbie again
It is normal for you to feel like kids again in the light of your Mom's deterioration. It gives us a helpless feeling .. even as grown up and aging 'kids.
I was in my early 60s when Mom began to show signs of Alzheimers. and it was the hardest thing I ever had to get through. Instead of being the respected and most wise and all knowing matriarch of the family, now she was telling 'lies', wandering off, soiling herself, being unknowingly rude, annoying people -- and yet did not like it when her children told her what to do. It is a dilemma ... glad you got the go ahead to place her in a nursing home, and I hope it all goes smoothly for all of you.
