Fear my mom may die soon...

I am so sad. :cry

I just received news that my mom is not doing well on her Alzheimer's medication.

I know I've almost totally lost her emotionally; now I fear I am going to lose her physically.

I miss her wonderful personality so much.

I was lucky to have had such a cool mom for 80 years, though.

I just want to cry and cry and cry; I have already binged today. It helped a little.

Star :cry

Hold onto that thought, dear. It's more than a lot of people get.

Thank you, Ms. Deer...actually I guess it would be 51 years--my whole life. She got 80 good years. You are totally right, I know, some children don't get their moms for very long at all. :(

BTW doesn't it just seem like some people are so strong-willed and such strong personalities, that you just think they will never pass away?! Well, that is how mom is... :sigh

Thank you, Jesserie...
Thank you, Becky...
The dr says that mom is in the beginning stges of Alzheimer's Disease.

I don't know about that.

In my research, thus far, I have found that symptoms of AD may not appear for 30-50 years!

I honestly believe she has had AD a lot longer. We always (as is typical with the denial of diseases) covered for her when she would forget things like keys, where she was going, what she was going to do next.

Of course, way back then, not much was known about AD at all. Then again, not all that much is known today. The meds are mostly experimental, I am sad to say, and of course, don't work for everyone.

I must still be in the Denial Stage myself. :stu
