I am really struggling with my mom right now. She is miserable. She seems to have forgotten about all of her strokes and the fact that she hasn't walked in over 5 years. She cries and cries that she wants to go home, wants her mom. Today I tried to distract her with some toy magazines telling her to pick out some stuff. Then she cried and cried that she wanted to go shopping....way past dark when I told her the stores were closed. Still she cried to go shopping.
Now she is crying that she wants to walk like everybody else. The kids are upset. I am upset. She is miserable and everyone around her is too.
She is beyond reasoning or understanding what is going on. I had hoped that it was related to a UTI but antibiotics have not improved her mental state. I feel so bad for her. I don't know what to do. I tried calling the doctors office to talk with her doctor but no one answered. I need to call again tomorrow. I don't know that there is anything that they could do to help or not. It is hard because she is so immobile.
I wish that there was someone with all the answers that could tell me what to do. I know I have been complaining about this a lot lately, it has really been getting that much worse. My husband is upset about it and looks to me for answers.
