Hi, I haven't posted or even visited for 18 months. Mums condition continues to worsen. Her short term memory span is now just a couple of minutes, she makes up stories to fill in the gaps in her memory, she is easily confused, scares easily, accepts no help from her carers other than me and at times is very depressive and argumentative. Two weeks ago I was told I was going to be made redundant in mid September and finding a new job is not easy. I may even have to move away to work. What will happen to mum then she misses me like crazy when I'm at work and when I go away for a weekend she gets really upset. She keeps telling me she will kill herself before she will go to any home. Life at the moment is not great.
