Does anyone else's loved one with PSP verbally abuse and try to get physically abusive to you the carer ? I'm not sure how much more I can take from my mum ! I know what she says and does is not her but the PSP or the meds but she knows exactly what buttons to press for me to see red and shout at her then instantly feel guilty and it getting to be a daily occurrence.
Tonight she has grabbed my sleeve and said she wishes she could strangle me so she would be rid of me , told me to F off , that I'm a liar, i abuse my 2 children , tells me I'm poisoning her and that I tie her ups so she can't move .this is all in front of my 10 and 4 yr old
My mum refuses to eat and hardly drinks anything the nurses and Drs say i can only do what I'm doing and nothing else they can suggest as she refused peg and supplements .
I'm worried that we have CHC assessment next Monday and I haven't the strength or the energy to gen up on what's needed I have however been writing a sort of journal daily with what's been happening and what has been said , I just hope this will be what is needed - wish me luck !
I wish that we could go back to a happier place/time ( photo taken in July this year of mum , me and my boys ) as PSP is torture for the sufferer everyone that cares for and loves them.
