I just wanted someone to know, someone to talk to. My dear Mother Nellie, passed away on the 26th July. But I am much too raw to talk about how she suffered the last three weeks of her life. Because what her alzheimer's did to her, it felt as though she was my child, not the other way round. And I feel like I have lost my child. She looked to me for everything, and I do mean everything, so I feel terrible that I could'nt go with her to show the way, talk for her so that people would understand what she wanted. Ask them for whatever she needed. I feel lost, tearful. Battered, weak. I feel as though I have been through a war, and I lost. I am sorry I cannot write any more, but I just wanted someone to know. I lost my Mother. From Gee.
