She is back in hospital. I think the shock of the shoulder dislocation was too much for her... and it is not looking good. I pray for miracles. All the time now. For her sake I should accept it, and I do - to an extend - but I wish we could go back to just being mom and daughter, without this terrible illness.

my mum has vascular dementia, about 18 months now, we as a family have watched mum go through alot of stages and got through them, but this one is proving very difficult and emotionly stressful. She's screaming all the time, we thought she was in terrible pain and took her to hospital for 24hrs, but nothing wrong, had doctor out to her loads of times, nothing wrong with her. We are now putting her back of her medication just to give her body a rest, we dont want to, as she was brighter without it,

I've never posted on here before; but I'm feeling really down lately but I need some support. My dad is a sufferer of alzheimer's; he was diagnosed a few years ago and it is starting to get really hard.
I wanted to know if there are any teens on here that could chat with me and tell me how they are coping with juggling a-levels, this disease and what not.
