Hi ,It has been a while since I first posted. I was so touched by the responses that I received. My family have read them and feel the same. Things have worsened with mum. She still sees dad as a stranger who has come into her house and she dislikes him imensely. Up to today when i have taken her back home she realises that it is dad, but within a couple of hours she is back to my house or ringing in a state. Tonight has been the worst. She was in her nightclothes and trying to get out the house at 8.30. Dad locked the doors and obviously had to restain her a little to stop her. She was screaming when he phoned me and had been banging her shoe on the wall calling her neighbour. She got very agressive towards me too. My brother came and walked her around the block, but she still wanted that man out of the house. I spoke to the emergency doctor who told me to try her with more promazine. The problem with medication is that she won't take it! Not even Paracetamol and she doesn't have anu other medication. Dad puts it in her coffee in the morning but it doesn't always get drunk same with through the day. I couldn't quite imagine a doctor coming towards her with a needle!!! So Dad went to bed and we sat with her for half an hour. She wouldn't come back to my house and she wouldn't go to bed. So we have left her in the sitting room, and locked up - dad has the keys. Don't think i will sleep well tonight. will speak to psyco- geriatrist tommorrow.
