Mum died 21st December and we had her funeral yesterday. Mum donated her brain for research into PSP and donations for the PSPA was £200.
I was in total shock until the funeral but glad i had the opportunity there to raise awareness of PSP. I will continue to do so and me and my 3 sons will be doing Hadrians Wall June 1st next June.
A horrible horrible disease that robbed me of my Mum. I believe she started with it 8 yrs ago but had been trying to get a diagnosis for 5 years...we got it this year!!!
She was taken into hospital with a water infection, which set the dementia off and she went down very quickly from there. I brought her home to die which she did peacefully.
My heartfelt thanks to PSP Association for being my support and guide, to Health Unlocked for being able to share with you all and for all of you, my friends for going theough this with me and sharing.
Having looked after Mum for 8years I am lost and left with a big hole inside and it hurts so much. Even though you know what is going to happen it was such a shock.
Love you Mum always xxxx
