sad  i'm new here. i just wanted to say i'm glad i finally found a place i could come to and talk about my momma. she's got alzheimers and been in the nursing home a few years now. she's at the stage where she doesn't know reality from fantisy. she still knows me and my sister. we go there alot. it's so hard watching her go down. losing the sweet momma i once knew. she always was a simple soul. still is that. i see a glimpse of momma every great once in awhile. sad i get so sad. she's always on my mind. i'm bipolar and have depression. so i have to be careful. but i think i'm already grieving for her. is that natuarl? she needs me. so i always will be there. thanks for listening. me

Welcome
I am so sorry about your Mom hun but at least now you have aplace to come to and get support ask questions and find out different things ..........

As far as grieving already I dont know if its normal or not I know I did it before I finally lost mom last March and I never thought it was wrong I was grieving for the woman she use to be the strong outgoing vibrant and stubborn Lady she had been in my life
I am glad you see her all the time it is important for them as well as you and your sister
Please continue to post and come to know us here and us you

went to see momma yesterday. she caught me off gaurd and asked me where her momma was. i told her she was gone. she said gone where? i said in a sweet voice momma she's been dead for many years now. at first she had a shocked look on her face, then she just said oh and started talking about something else. it was sad. i cried when i left. i hate this disease. thanks for listening.

I am so glad you finally posted I was getting worried about you
Yes it is so da*m sad and excrutiatingly painful what the disease does
I saw mom go from a vibrant humourous witty sarcasticly funny women to a shell of herself in no time
I still made some memories with her that I have to hang on to It will be a yr soon that she has been gone and I am already starting to go inot the mourning all over actually have not come out of it
Please keep in touch hun and let us know you are okay and how your mom is
God Bless

Reminding a person with AD that thier Mom or Dad or whoever they have died should be tempered with "i don't know" or maybe they are at work or whatever.The truth only keeps the person upset.
I see my Neuro tomorrow,& I may go back on the Razadyne.I'm slipping slowly.

hi yaw, your right snowy about the death thing. momma caught me off gaurd that day. she's asked about her momma since then and i've not said that. i told her she would be there soon. i messed up that other time. both times i cried my eyes out though. she's slipping away so fast it seems. today she couldn't seem to know what to do with the jello. my sister fed it to her. i know the day will come soon that we will have to feed her. it's been a sad day. i was up there a long time today. very tired. talk later. thanks for listening.

went and seen momma again yesterday. she was having a bad day. when i first got there she was in the dining room doing exersices. i knew right away she had messed her diaper. i asked her if she needed to go to the bathroom. she said yes in that sweet little voice. i called for an aid to help me clean her up. she did all the work. i almost cried. my momma is short and big. i'm little and can't help much. and i get all nervious. anyways got that done. then i sat out front with her and listen to her talk about off the wall stuff for a long time. then i hugged her and played the little game i always do each time i see her before i leave. i ask her. momma what's my name? she always says elaine. i know there will come a day she won't. i don't know if she even knows it's me or just a game. she's getting where she doesn't know what to do with her food. why would she still remember me. i love her so much. i gotta check out yaws depression rooms. i feel myself slipping. i take meds. i'll have to talk to my shrink i guess. thanks for listening.

Hi ya sweetie
I have been in bed down with illness so sorry not around
Depression is a horrid thing to live with I know that if you go over to that forum Shy or Els will help you out no prob as will any member ...........
You do need time for yourself and some times your mom will have very good days and very bad days
It is the disease

Your depression will go hand in hand with her going down as well as I am sure you know ......
Remember hun I am here to talk to ....
Gentle Huggs

Luvs to you n your mom
