    Thursday I get frantic calls from neighbours because my Mother is so confused she is refusing to allow Gas Board to service3 her boiler for the umpteenth time she has made an appointment

    Friday she is thoroughly abusive to my sister on the phone

    Saturday she is chirpy and chattering to the Gardening girl although it was a guessing game as to exactly what she was saying

    Honestly just what is one supposed to do with such a roller coaster ride

    Hi Helena

    My Mum is just the same one day she is sweetness & light and the next day moody & snappy.
    Been having big drama's recently about hiding things purse, bag, glasses etc, thinking people are stealing them.
    She seems to have gone back to the 1980's at present and ask's if my children 27 & 24 are home from school.
    You just never know from one day to the next how she will be.
    Keep smiling,

    Kaz

    I am afraid I wish we were back n the 1980s because then there would be none of his Human Rights nonsense they would have ensured she was put in a home

    I am tired of telling he neighbours theres zero I can do and nothing the doctors can do either until there is a crisis
