My mom suffered severe brain damage last December. She gets very confused at times. But lately it's been getting worse. I talked to her yesterday and she thought she was in jail and that everyone was after her. She was just sitting in the chair in her room at the care home that she's in. I've been going to visit her for the last three days but haven't made it there. I'm leaving at 12 to go today. I hope to God she's having a good day. She's in her 80's and I get so upset when she's 'confused'. Yesterday she was ranting on the phone to me about her confusion not knowing how confused she is. I have only 15 minutes before I go - If anyone here prays I would appreciate prayers for my mom even if they can't stop the progression of her ailments maybe they can put her on some meds that will help with the psychosis of sort and her confusion and her anxieties. Thank you so much - Also if anyone has any advice for me as to how I'm supposed to handle this with her without getting so darn depressed - yesterday it threw me into a depression so bad that I was mean to my husband and that's unusual for me to act that way. It hurts so bad to see her like that and I really don't know how to feel or behave about it.
