Last night Mom was in a terror. But an hour later she was fine. Muttered alot in the night.
This morning, she got up and was herself. Didn't remember much of anything. We had a good breakfast. I went to the store and got what I forgot yesterday. Gone 15 minutes. She was asleep so I went out back and trimmed a bush that was over grown. Then to another. I heard crys of help me! I ran in and she was out front on the step and yelling for help for her knee. She was not awake but walking in her sleep again.
I guess this is why I lost my two furbabies. Only one to comfort me and worry about now. I did look for her. Found Lucy under the bed. No, not scared but her place from time to time. I am afraid for Mom when she walks in her sleep like this. Then she asked me who I was. I put ben gay on her knee and she fell in a peaceful sleep.
We cannot afford home help on our own or a nursing home-which I am still opposed to for both of us. I need some one to come in and just be a sitter. No one wants the responsibility. I just don't know what to do anymore. I can't afford to stay home and the longer I do, the less someone will want to hire me.
Oh LORD Help!
Hello again. My psychiatrist gave me a surprise phone call yesterday and decided to add a low dose of Zyprexa to my cocktail of meds. The dose is 2.5mg and I'm supposed to start with half for the first 3 days before taking the full 2.5mg. I am currently on 30mg of Remeron and low doses of Klonopin spread throughout the day (.25mg at a time, usually 2 to 3 times a day.) Has anybody had experience...
I am slowly but steadily ( i hope) am improving. The meds are starting to kick in a bit. I really relish the moments of comfort i get from time to time. I would like to be able to go on a holiday sometime when things are back to normal. Thats the dream.
