Hi. I'm having a bad day. Mum has been really demanding, and I'm finding it hard to cope. I have shouted at her. She lunged herself onto the commode (not to go to the loo) while I was making her lunch, and was screaming that she wanted to go upstairs but could not tell me why. I tried to tell her that it was dangerous but 2 mins later she did it again, resulting in me taking the commode away for her own safety. I took her out yesterday, but it nearly kills me as her mobility is so bad, but I can't just leave her sitting in the chair all day. Dad is at work 3 days a week still (he's 76), and he finds it hard to cope too.
Seems like mum is deteriorating again as her speech is quite bad now and her mobility is bad too. We have 2 carers to wash and dress mum in the mornings.
She seems like she has a form of dementia or something similar as she wails a lot and gets fixated on something and keeps on about it and there's no reasoning with her.
