    Others who think they know better!

    Hi Helly 11 I understand completely. It is difficult to ignore some people and their "advice". But please try. I wish some people would keep silly questions and opinions to themselves. I have been there and have the tee-shirt! Without Talking Point, I would have gone totally mad. Virtual hug...

    How do I get Mum to have a bath?

    Try not to fret too much about hygiene. You have done so much for your Mum. This is an area that becomes difficult for many people. Do you have any carers coming in to help you? We had one carer for OH for a very short period and he was brilliant but it all went downhill after him. All you can...

    It's too hot outside

    You keep your Mum in the shade and she takes fluid so basically that is all you can do. She enjoys being outside so as long as she is safe And visible to you, let it be. A note of caution, a person with Dem can disappear in seconds so outside area has to be escape proof. Aisling xx

    You need help when your husband is not in daycare. You can't do everything. Please talk to your doctor and tell him/her everything. If you get a prescription do please try it out. You would take meds for pain. You have mental pain and exhaustion. Get help for yourself please. Aisling xx

    Thank you. Lashing rain so Mass was held in church. Packed to the rafters and crowd outside. My sister was there and we couldn't find each other. We forgot to switch fones on after service. No song of invisibles TG. At least I didn't see any of them so my nerves were spared from standing...
