I posted here for the first time last week. Went to visit my Mum at the weekend and I really did try to keep my patience and not shout at her but she spent almost the entire weekend in her 'money cupboard' counting her money, hiding her money, losing her money. Its hard not to shout at someone when they've asked you where their purse is for the 50th time that morning! Unfortunately she will not spend any money so her fridge is bare and she can't remember how to use the cooker/microwave and she is really thin. My brother and sister live in the same street but they're getting fed up with her not reimbursing them if they buy her food as she has plenty of money. She is physically fit too but won't do any housework so my sister's at her wits end. What do you think we should go from here ? Her diagnosis isn't complete yet - she is due a brain scan next week but has had the 'question and answer' session and a chest x-ray.
