My mum who is 71 has had a heart problem for the past 3 years and has been in and out of hospital!
She spent a month in hospital last August and the months after she was allowed home I knew something was wrong as she use to ask the same questions over and over and she doesn't bath or clean the house etc anymore. I took her to the doctor 2 months ago who referred her for a scan and we got the results on Thursday- they said it either Alzemiers/ vascular dementia or both! I'm 32 and still living at home to take care of her- my dad still works full time. I have 2 brothers and a sister who all have kids and haven't really helped out much before. I have been with my partner for 5 years and was hoping to move in with him this year and still want to but would feel bad about leaving my mum now. When I found out I just cried and cried and I now very depressed and scared of things to come.
I sound selfish thinking of myself
