I have not long given up work to be a carer for my mother who was diagnosed with dementia almost 2 years ago. I must admit every day is a challenge and it requires so much more than just checking she's OK, has eaten or has taken her medication. My issue today involved (amongst other things) the possibility that my mother has been suffering with an eating disorder. Let me explain, approx 6 months ago it was evident the drains in my mum's house were blocked, the house is over 100 years old so originally I wasn't concerned it was a problem relating to her directly, when I called and arranged a company to remove the blockage it appeared there was more than just normal sewerage causing the problem, however once it was cleared we put it down to the fact she may have been a bit carefree with the disposal of the loo roll, fast forward to today and my OH went to check the drains at the back of the house, once again it was blocked and overflowing, I don't wish to go into great detail but as the blockage was being removed it appeared it was possibly food or more precisely vomit that had caused the blockage. I know for a fact since she has become ill my mum can binge eat on certain foods, I could leave the house of an evening and next morning 4 packs of biscuits may have disappeared, obviously she will deny this, but could she be making herself sick afterwards? Has anyone else experienced this?
