After being given a 50/50 chance of making it out of hospital 12 months ago and being very ill, my Mother over the last 6 months has self prescribed herself back onto the drink again.
The position last year became unmanageable and the state she was in and living in was grim.
She has since shown zero interest in getting any support with her drinking, The lies have started again, some return of confabulation and other associated issues that we recognise from a year ago.
She is convinced that the Dr/Nurse has basically said her bloods are back to normal, (She is now on a permanent daily intake of about 5 different medications) and basically given herself the green light to get back on it.
We’ve seen it all over the last 5 years but since diagnosis of Stage 3 Decompensated 12 months ago, drinking again is the last thing that should be happening.
She’s 69 years old, verging on impossible to deal with....
Would welcome any thoughts!
