I'm so glad I'm not alone. After reading a few of your post


I'm so glad I'm not alone. After reading a few of your post I realized you are feeling the very things that I feel: anger confusion and sadness. I too is watching my mother die slowly. I think it would be better if she could talk to me but for the past two years she has not even been aware of her surrounding. Her mind is wrecked from mental illness (schizophrenia) and Alzheimer disease. I feel confused because I don't understand why it's so hard for me to find some acceptance, I'm angry because no one seem to be able to help her and sad because I'm watching my mother die. I'm here with her alone and it seems no one cares. Although I'm truly sorry that any of us is going through this I have to admit it made me feel a little better knowing that I'm not alone. I pray that's not wrong.

@Ms.linda Yes our experiences with both in-home providers and care facilities have also been questionable, bad and worse. It is definitely a challenge to find someone you can trust! I had this resource list recommended to me so I wanted to pass it along to you as well. You can see if there is anything that might be useful for you: Hope so!

Yes I understand completely. And like your mother, my mom never took care of her self either. And no-one else in our family suffered from Alzheimer's that I'm aware of
My mom gets really confused as well. Especially at night. Her psychiatrist calls it sun downing. I turn on music from the 60s for my mom rather than let her watch tv during the day because the voices from the television set seem to confuse her more while the music seem to be more calming. if I can think of anything else that might help I'll let you know.
I use to ask, why my mother. But now I wonder why anyone's mother. I share your pain and if venting helps, keep writing me.
