Hi all, Thank you for your kind words and support in regards to the Nursing Home posting I made and sorry it has taken me a bit of time to respond, but I had to take some time out from seeing my mum on Monday. My Mum has Cerebal Atrophy Dementia and she lives in Devon, which is about 400 miles from me in Kent, and I have not moved her closer to me as she has a good friend in Devon that can visit her everyday, unlike I would be able to even if she was closer! It also takes a lot of pressure of me in certain aspects but in others it makes the 'guilt' of not seeing her more intensified. Mum is now at the stage of where she is unable to eat, drink, talk or walk unaided so she now has to go into a Nursing Home as the nursing side has now overtaken the mental health issues. She is only 56! I have just read JC141265 posting in 2005 Going Crazy, and that really did hit home to me about feeling ill all the time. I have not felt 'right' for years now, and I have had so many tests to try and find out what was wrong without much success. I have never been a sickie type of person, but in the last few years, my skin has been dry, unexplained bleeding, libido at zero, constantly tired, aches & pains and depression of which now I am taking anti-depressants as it had got to the stage of where I was finding the smallest thing I was unable to cope with, and I was losing sight of me.....then when I read your posting suddenly everything started to make me realise I am not alone in this and I am not going crazy in this cruel world. Which is a relief as I am only 35! Last night my husband tried to comfort me while I was sobbing my heart out and he said to me "I wish there was something I could do or say to make you feel better" and all I could say was "There is nothing you or anyone can do - that's the problem!" That is the real truth of the matter isnt it that 'No one can really help can they!'
