Reminiscing

I haven't posted on here much a lately, but I read all the posts everyday which help me loads. I have cried from reading a lot of the recent posts, so I just wanted to let all of you know that I am thinking of you all even though i haven't replied to many posts.

Mum not too good at the minute, I'm sat here watching her sleep and remembering the person she used to be. The most sociable person I know she would make conversation with anybody. As a child she was very protective of her children, we didn't have much money but there was always a meal on the table the house was clean and we felt safe and loved.

Well mum it's now my time to look after you, as hard as it is physically and emotionally I wouldn't change it for the world it is an absolute privilege.

The one thing that upsets me is over the past 4 years of caring for you I can clearly remember your personality and how psp has stripped you of this but I struggle to remember how you use to look, all I can see and remember is how you are now and what psp has done to you.

I love you so much mum 😪😪😪😪

  • Hello Richmond. It is difficult isn't it seeing the person you love, changing personality and appearance. I have put photographs of my husband around the house, some of our wedding, two of him accompanying our daughters to their weddings. This helps me to keep abreast of then and now. I do sometimes get upset, seeing the changes, but then I look in the mirror !! ( enough said!) I notice that you are only seven miles away. Did you know that there is a PSP Association that meets in Sheffield on the first Tuesday of the month at Pond's Forge? We didn't go for ages, but it does help, meeting others and exchanging advice and information. We get speakers too, who can be helpful. Also, you can go alone or with your mother. Everyone there knows about PSP and caring. If you are interested, do get in touch. X
