Hello, This is the first time I've posted on your message boards. My mum has Alzheimers and I wanted to get as much information as I could. My dad is caring for her, but he isn't getting any younger, and I worry about his health. I have health problems, so cannot do as much as I would like. My mum first showed forgetfulness in 200, but has worsened each year, so that now she is very forgetful, and confused. At times she doesn't know who I am, and even talks to dad as if he's someone else. She seems to recall events from the past and think they are happening now. I find it very hard not to correct her when she says or does something odd. I am angry at her for leaving, for that's what it feels like. At times my mum comes back to visit, and those days I treasure. I get very sad thinking about how she used to be. She was always so happy and we would laugh so much, but now she hardly ever smiles, let alone laugh. I wish I had my mum back.
