Hello everyone.... I haven't written in a while, I have been so busy,tired and very frustrated. Back in May I moved my family to go live with my mom who has been caring for my father for many years. It was getting to much for her with all the falls and care he required. Since I moved in Dad has been attending adult day care three days a week to give mom a break while I am at work. It is very expenses and they are private paying but it's a break for her. It is very hard taking care of him, like I said he fall constantly and has required stitches at times no broken bones yet. He chockes all the time on drinks or food. He is in content of urine and feces. We try putting on external male cathers but he pulls them off, two loads of wash almost every day. He is up most of the night trying to get out of hospital bed,which means no one gets proper sleep. The worst is that he is getting agrassive with us and at times his van driver that takes him to day care. He is on seroquel,depakote and a prn Ativan to help him relax, none of theses meds are helping and he seems to be getting more upset. When I take him to see his geriatric psychiatrist he seems like he doesn't know what to do. What the hell are we seeing him for? I am at my wits ends, I am so stressed out and go to bed crying most of the night. We all need more help caring for loved ones with PSP and doctors that understand this desease better. I am sure most of you must feel alone as I have been for a long time. Sorry for complaining but I just need to vent to people who understand and are going thru the same thing. Take care and I will let you know how it's going. Mconnie
