today my mum rang and said my father, who has been suffering from dementia for quite a while now, had cut his wrist. Mum didn't take him to the hospital as the cuts werent that deep but took dad to the doctors the next morning. The doctors put him on more antidepressants and sent them home. Mum is a mess as she doesnt know what to do. She hardly sleeps and cant go anywhere because dad doesnt want her to. The doctors have said he is manipulating her and mum is thinking that this might be manipulation because mum and I were going shopping the next day. Dad cut both wrists and then walked into the bedroom and told mum what he had done. I dont know how to help my mum or dad. I just listen to mum so she can vent but feel helpless as I dont know whatelse to do. Is this what it is going to feel like from now on?
