Hi Everyone. This is my first post and I just wanted some advice. Mum was diagnosed with AD some 4 years ago and for the last few months has been getting into my bed at all times of the night and morning and I can't seem to stop it. Weekends arn't a problem but I work full time and mum tends to get in my bed between 4 and 5 and then keeps me awake by continuing to ask me when we are getting up. I am a lone carer so don't have anyone else who can share the caring which I accept and most of the time we get on fine but it would be nice to have a lie in once in a while. The latest I get up is usually 8.00 and thats a lie in. Mum tends to nap in the day a lot which I have tried to stop but she gets a bit nowty with me. She is on anti-depressants and sulphoride but due to start aricet (not sure I have spelt that right) next week... will that help ? On a lighter note we have a pet budgie called Peter and mum is now convinced Peter will get the flu (after the recent news reports) I have reassured her that Peter will be fine but we have the lem sips on standby. I have read a lot of the notices and its reassuring to know that I am not alone in my caring role.
