Hi Worried girl, thank you for asking bout my mum. Like Sandi, the situation is the same.
My mum got out of hospital onTuesday(she was having prolonged seizuires). her mobility is not good, she is very unsteady on her feet, sounds very weak, lies sleeping about half the day, she does not do anything in the house at all it is all left to her partner. she never really wants to talk to me, gets annoyed when asked how she is. yesterday she was being sick constantly she is getting severe pains in her hip she had a hip replacement just before xmas, do not know if something is wrong there. right now i think she is too sick to think about drinking, I know as soon as she feels a little better she will drink. I think like pink grandma says in another post that inside she is sick of being sick. she is so lucky she has someone at home, if not she would have to go to a nursing home there is no way she can cope alone.
Even after all these years and allthat her partner has been through, he still does not cometoterms with the fact that she is not going to give up, even the nurse at the hospital this time says my mum was very adament about not giving up refusing any help and being very cheeky and difficult.
me I am ok, I have learned to step back a little and try and concentrate on my own family, cause my mum does not want my help.
I still crave for the mum I should have had, just like you worried girl. it hurts so much , but I have got to get through this .
Sandi always thinking of you when I come on here, we all have so much in common
Arneeb you and worried girl have came through the worst, now is the time you look back and try and make sense of it all and get on with your lives, you both have did so well....
