Hello, i wonder if anyone can offer some advise please? My mother has had a UTI for the last month. She is now on the 3rd lot of antibiotics and doesn't seem to be clearing up. She has declined quite severely over the past 2 months and now has a diagnosis of phychosis along with PSP. Her neurologist said that it can develop with PSP. Can anyone shed any light on any of these issues please? My mom has changed so much in such a short space of time, she is refusing to eat and drink as she thinks she is being poisoned and we are finding the whole thing very hard cope with. Why is PSP so cruel? We feel we are already grieving as our Mom how we knew her is no longer here. Its selfish to feel so bad as its her thats suffering, watching this horrible illness take the person you love is just heartbreaking. How on earth do you cope with the feelings of complete helplessness and heartache? All we want is our Mom back. She knows how much we love her and are doing everything we can to make life as good as we can for her.
Sorry to ramble on, sometimes it al just gets too much and anyone who can help with some advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you xx
