Sad for My Madre (Mother)
Last updated: April 2023
So my mother was diagnosed in early 2021.
A total turnaround
This was a shocker but we saw signs; just didn’t know why she was changing and doing things that were not normal. Our mother has always been so strong, organized, clean and very independent! So this is a total turn around that I wish I could erase and get my mother back.😔
My mother is no longer my mother
We moved her out of her apartment and she moved in with me; I’m the youngest of 7 children. There are 6 of us living. She has changed fast and is in a stage where she has outburst and argues, has called the cops on us, and also has said we have hit her. I had to add cameras just for all of our safety. You can see my mother is no longer my mother. She is becoming someone else and because of this disease I have cried and have gone through so many sad days in this past year!
This is a living nightmare! I would have never thought we would be going through this but here we are! Trying to stay positive each day we are given!
Does caregiving change for you as the seasons change?
