I am really struggling with mum. It's been a few things the past few days including over eating (2 slices of bread plus chocolate bread for breakfast, dad made her two slices for tea and she forgot and made her own and I know she ate all 4 slices), drinking her juice without diluting it. Then because she hasn't washed, she had a rash on her chest which wouldn't go. Took her to the doctors, was given some cream which didn't work, took her again this week, given a different cream which is working but today she had an argument about it and wouldn't let me do it. What do I do, force her to use it or let it get worse? Also if she sees the dermatologist, she will probably get me to use some cream but whats the point if she won't use it. I suppose my real question is should I let her get worse or fight to make sure she gets rid of this? I'm guessing the advice would be to leave it but then won't she get iller? I seems like a catch 22, she doesn't understand that her actions cause other illnesses (she has had several infections in a year) and won't let us help them to heal. At the same time my blood pressure must be going through the roof and I don't know how to cope. I'm off for a very long walk to get away from it all for a while. I hope I feel better when I return.
