you might have much longer than you thought with your mum. it truly is in gods hands.
when my mum was told she only would live 3 months if she continued to drink, that was over two years ago. me myself, would not be able to take the amount of alcohol that she takes and still function, but she manages it. and still life goes on for her .... many times i have though about people who get no chances in life, they are in an accident or have an illness but do not survive. through reading many past posts, i realise that liver disease has no fast rules and as you know can affect all parts of the body.
in her own mind she probably wonders what all the fuss is about, she might not be the person she was but she still can manage. maybe thats what keeps her going,who knows. i know my mum is in complete denial over her addiction and how ill she is, she says she cant remember being in hospital so many times. maybe she just remembers what she wants to.
i hope you find some help for your mum,that defianately takes the worry of u. as caring for her means you are constantly worrying about her. you have to take some time out and think of yourself, its not selfish but necessary.
