This is my first time on here but am desperately wanting to talk to someone experiencing similar things. i have so much i want to say but now don;t really now where to start. my mum has been recently diagnosed with dementia, she is 55, my dad left her for another woman 6 weeks ago and have not heard from him since. My mum is in hosiptal becuase she can't look after herself, she is supposed to be being assessed but it has been 6 weeks and nothing seems to be happening. I spend most evenings there and take her home on a weekend. i am so full of mixed emotions, i am constantly trying to stay positive for my mums sake but it is hard when often i can't see the positive myself. I worry about everything and often get frustrated with my mum and then end up feeling guilty. I feel guilty that she is where she is, she begged me not to let her end up in hospital. She has good days and bad days, on the good days i find it hard to believe this has all happened so suddenly.
