Haven't been on here for a week and what a week it's been!! On the plus side, my daughter had her brain scan and came out of the anaesthetic okay (despite the anaesthetist telling me there's always a chance that things could go wrong - thanks for that, how comforting). Just got to wait for the results now... Anyway, as you may remember last time I was on here we'd had a bad weekend with mum and I was struggling to get her an emergency appointment with the GP or consultant or someone!!! We saw the GP who said he could do nothing in changing or adding to her medication without the consultants approval. The day before our appointment with the consultant my sister and I sent her an e-mail listing all the new things that were happening to try and avoid talking about it in front of mum as she doesn't think there is anything wrong with her and so gets very aggressive. Dad was happy with this and thought it was a good idea. We get in there and she's discussing some of the things on the list and dad says "oh, it wasn't as bad as that" and "well she only kicked me the once" (a whopper of a lie by the way) and so on. He just denied or played down everything on the list - I've never been so annoyed. Given that we were going to take mum into A & E because we didn't know what to do with her how could he do this??!! I'm so cross - I can't even express my crossness because the little faces won't work for me today. I'm utterly bewildered - on the plus side she gave mum some anti-psychotics so I'm hoping that helps. Why would he do this? It frustrates me that he complains about how hard it is and that he can't manage but then when the moment comes when we see someone who could help us he does this. My sister wants us to tell him we're not helping him out anymore until he gets his act together but I feel weird about doing that too. Any thoughts?
