My mom was just diagnosed with early alzheimer's. She knows it. I understand her being depressed but I dont know how to help her. I have been the care giver for my mom a little over a yr now. I don't know how far is 'too far' when caring for her. I have a lot of health problems myself. My sisters & I have always PrOmIsEd NeVeR to put her in a nursing home[or other type of facility]. She used to work in one & alawys made us swear we would never. Besides I don't think she's quite that bad, at this piont, anyway. And I don't think I could ever bring myself to do that. I've heard horre stories & witnessed them about facilities. I need some help, please!

So today was my birthday, yet it's made me feel down. I got a text from my mum and one of my sisters (I have 2 sisters, 1 brother), my mum dropped off a present and card from her and my dad. My boyfriend only remembered it was my birthday after I'd told him about my daughter singing happy birthday to me and he posted on Facebook. Then he caused an argument.Yeah I got messages on Facebook, but...
Minutes, days and weeks go by. And no one gives a care about what I am doing or if I am alive or not. I only hear from Family when they want something. Supposedly my “friends” don’t even text or call to see if i want to go somewhere or do somthing. I could die and it may be days before anyone would miss me.
