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

It's never easy I guess to lose your mother. I remember my mother telling me that my grandfather took it hard when his mother (my great-grandmother) died, even though he was in his 60's and she was in her 80's. My mother never has talked to me about how she felt about losing her mother when she was 18 (although she did say it has something to do with why she never married). And reading this makes me think about what could have been in my own life. When I was 4, my mother got hit by a car, and when I was 13, she almost died because she got an infection after she had surgery. It was hard enough being a teenager *with* a mother. Who knows what would have happened if I had to go through it *without* one.

The one positive you can take with you is that you still have the memories of how your mother was before she got Alzheimers, and it sounds like your children got to meet her. I hope that your whole family comes together to spend time with her before she dies.
