My 90 year old mom has not had a drink in over 40 years. She has, however become dependent on sleeping pills and sedatives. She also now has age related anxiety/depression, so she does need medication. Other than that, she is quite healthy for a 90 year old woman. I'm just wondering about the possible connection between the pills and the booze, because her behavior now is often like it was during my childhood. I must admit, too, that emotions that I thought I had worked through are bubbling up, making it difficult for me to care for her. She really has been admirable and remarkable. I can't imagine totally depriving her, yet I do not know if the pills are like the booze, in that you cannot have any. I hope someone can give me some advice on this. Thank you!
