this is actually my first time posting on the alzheimers site i am usually on the anxiety board...anyway my grandmother has had alz. for at least the past three years my mom took care of my day until he died then had to move in with my grandmother right after that because the dr.said someone had to or she had to go to a nursing home......which we all know she so badly does not want to!!anyway after a year of my mom doing it by herself she was calling me crying that she just couldnt do it by herself anymore so i made the decision to sell my house and move in here with her to help her care for grandma......sometimes i so wish i had never done it my grandma is getting worse everyday and she is sooooo mean she almost argues constantly cursing at everyone etc.etc. now remind you i have three children ages 15,13,10 and they are my first priorty but it seems that all i can do is do for her and my mom ...its just so frustrating my mom has one brother that lives across the street and we see him about as much as i see u guys his wife comes about twice a week but u would think they would offer to take grandma on weekends to give us some relief but just at my wits ends as to what to do anymore i feel like i have 5 children now as my mother is more dependant on me than ever....i love them all i just dont know how much more i can stand...anyway so for the long post just needed to vent i guess sad
This too shall pass!! Take care,Dottie :)
