Tomorrow, my mother will be sectioned based on the wishes of her nursing home and doctor, supported by my siblings, against my wishes and strenuous efforts to prevent it. Mum is not disruptive, abusive, or displaying any of the challenging behaviours that are common with dementia. Her crimes are continual pacing, inability to sleep and unreliable eating patterns. How can this make her a danger to herself or others? I know that this would have been her very worst nightmare throughout her life; in spite of serious episodes of depression, she was never willing to engage with the mental health system. Now I understand her wariness. Don't want to ever have to engage with my siblings again.
