| | Major change in my alcholic mother , advice urgently plz :(
Sorry, i accidently posted this question in another section, then seen this section.
Ok for the past 20 yrs my mum has been an alcoholic. She doesnt eat (at present it has been over three weeks). In the past 4 weeks i and my family have noticed major changes in her , i will list them below and please give me your opinion on what i should do ...
Barely able to walk or balance
sleeping all day and staying up all night (my mother has always been an early bedder so this is very out of character)
Memory , she will ask me the same question over and over in our conversations, she thinks things that happened a cpl of months ago actually happened years ago, she keeps asking my sister when i left and i havent been in her house that day at all. she seems unable to store any new information for any great period of time. She thinks she has eaten a couple of days ago but she hasnt eaten for weeks ...things like that .
Vomitting everyday, last week she ate something and just threw it back up. mostly it is bile or the tea or beer she has been drinking that she throws up, at least three times a day.
She isnt really even drinking that much at the moment, maybe just three or four cans of lager a nite which is less than half of what she normally drinks. She doesnt seem to think anything is wrong with her but we can all clearly see it. My mum is 48 and has been a drinker for 20 yrs now. I heard that if it is the first signs of korsakoffs syndrome that she needs medical help asap before it gets worse. What should i do? She can barely walk to the toilet nevermind make it to the drs surgery, do i call her dr and ask for a home visit, or do i take her to accident and emergency at the hosp? im at my wits end, my family consists of my 17 yr old sister and my grandmother, and we just dont know what to do for the best. Can someone please give me an idea of what my next move should be, i hope someone can answer me soon as i cant handle this much longer. thankyou in advance x
