My mum was diagnosed with alzheimers at the age of 53 at that time i was only 15. It was hard for me to come to terms with what was happening to my mum She was so young and happy i didnt understand. Things have slowly declined and we couldnt take care of her any more. Shes in a home now its a lovly place and i see her as often as i can. She has been having a lot of fits lately and i was wondering if this is normal ?? She recognises me still and im greatful for that . Its so hard because ive had to grow up so fast. But she looked after me all my life and now its mine turn to look after her. The hardest thing was not being able to have her at my wedding because i live in southport and mums just outside Fleetwood and she doesnt travel well since she got ill .
