Hello everyone and Happy New Year! This past year has been very difficult for my husband and myself as my mom has very quickly developed dementia and has trouble with daily activities. She does remember people however. She has been taking Aricept for a couple of months and I guess it is helping. She does seem more depressed though. She has developed trouble with bathroom control. It is so very difficult seeing someone you love deteriorate so rapidly. We have her house on the market for sale and plan to put her into assisted living when and if it sells. Meanwhile we are living with her and taking care of her but have a sitter with her during the day while we are at work. Thanks for listening!

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.
