I'm sure I have read somewhere on here that anti depressants can work for people with psp?
My Mum is now confined to her lounge in her chair all day, walking a few steps to use the mobile loo and a few more steps to bed all with her zima frame, she is really down and has been more so for the last couple of months, even though she has just become a great grandma, I thought he would of cheered her up more! when we ask her how she is feeling she just says "fed up". Mum has continuous urine infections and is on antibiotics every day now 10ml at bedtime. My Dad is her main carer and does a fantastic job with Mum, I go nearly every day and I shower Mum twice a week which is when we walk with the zima frame to the bathroom (downstairs) not far! But Mum is always exhausted when she returns back.
My Mum repeatedley fell backwards for a few years before being diagnosed with PSP, nearly 2 years ago now when she fell downstairs and broke her back and several ribs, we have never left her alone since then (Nov 2010) as she would undoubtedly fall backwards if we didn't walk behind her holding her waist for support. Mum also gets confused and tired when more than about 2 people are in the room, does anyone know why this happens? I think its something to do with Mum can't absorb everything that is being said!?
Sorry I've rambled on a bit but sometimes I feel helpless and just wish I could do more for my wonderful Mum xx
