The upshot is you haven't failed anyone ...... you are only going to fail yourself if you keep beating yourself up about this ..... this may be a phase - it may not be - who can say for certain? - not the GP, not you, not anyone .....So the upshot is I failed after all.
Or should it readSo the upshot is I failed after all.
I so know what you mean when you say ‘I’m staying in bed to die’ cycle.Mum may be ready to give up the fight, but I'm not. We have been down this road once before when mum was still living in her own home, and I did mange to break the ‘I’m staying in bed to die’ cycle.
So am I , but what help me is Thinking of the worse ( facing it, because its going to happen ) I use to say hoping for the best , but I gave up on hope when it come to mum AZ .I know its too early to tell, but I am the eternal optimist.
I think that's a great idea, maybe your mum just needs more time to recuperate. I hope your plans went well and you were able to entice your mum to eat a little. It's good that she is drinking plenty. I hope each day brings improvement. Best Wishes Taffy.Cate said:I’m going to back off with trying to persuade her to get up for a few days more.
That sounds lovely .’m going to put her favourite film on, Gone With The Wind, and just lay on the bed with her so we can watch it together.
Cate, that's a wonderful plan!When I go to see mum I’m going to take one of her favourites, jelly and ice cream, and maybe a sticky bun or two, her diabetes is the least of my worries, if I can just tempt her to eat something.
I’m going to back off with trying to persuade her to get up for a few days more.
I have put all the lovely Christmas photographs in a frame for her, that might just cheer her up a bit.

Dear Cate,she always got the hump, moaning, grumpy short temper when she gets back from day center , she getting more tried from going to day centre of late .
Now with my mother I am finding I am enjoying her company more , when she does not go to day centre , yes she lay in bed all day , sit up when she wants to . I stop worrying about it . I just sit down in same room with her enjoy a lazy day of not rushing around .
