Hi I am new to the forum. I think my mum has alzheimers. She has had a memory problem for about 2 years maybe a bit more. She had a test done about a year ago, which my dad had to arrange behind her back. She was given some medicine but does not take it anymore. One of the biggest problems is that she won't admit she has a problem.
If anyone tries to talk to her about it she becomes very angry.
I don't live in the same country as my mum so it is difficult trying to help. My dad is old and physically not very able so it is difficult for him.
In the last month my mum has also become very suspicious and agressive.
She is so angry with my dad and thinks that he is plotting something ( he is not)
She saw an email I sent to my dad saying that ;mum needs to see a doctor about her memory' and is now also angry with me.
The thing is one minute she would phone or email me saying she does not want me and my family to visit she feels threatend by me etc etc. Later she would phone or email saying how much she is looking forward to seeing me and kids and sometimes I would get some random message that does not make sence.
Like she would talk about something that happend a long time ago as if it just happend.
I am so hurt by the mean things she says to me. And then when she has forgotten that she said something mean and is nice I feel sad cause she doesn't remember. I find it so hard to understand that my mum is being this way.
Her doctor is meant to phone me tomorrow but I am just worried how they will deal with things if she needs more help since she doesn't want to admit there is anything wrong.
If anyone has experienced something similar maybe it would help to hear your story.
