Hi. I've been looking in on the PSP/CBD community on here for some time. I'm a member of carers UK but haven't found any cbd related help on there so I decided to join you guys. Mum has cbd and loads of other complaints, she's 84. She was wrongly diagnosed with parkinson's for a few years and got her diagnosis about 7 months ago. I've been her full time carer for the last 8 months. A fall caused a massive change in her condition at that time and I had to give up work to move in with her, since then she has lost the ability to do anything for herself. She is a full hoist, full feed, nursing bed the lot!! She is also totally blind and has COPD, it's been quite a journey. Mum's speech is now beginning to be affected and she has memory issues, she is on the whole mostly cognitively aware but likes to argue with me about being in another house, common, I know. I am an ex nurse and have worked in care for years, even so this is the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I hope to be of use, if I can, to others going down this road and to find an outlet for my own frustrations so that I can carry on this journey with her.
