Hi all. Yesterday was a good day for mum, she didn,t seem as confused and even explained to me how mixed up things were and how she realised that those 'things' were not really real and she was feeling so much better because she understood. When I helped her to bed (9.30pm) I thought I,d have a quiet half hour to read. To cut a long story short I went to bed 10pm and by 10.30 mum was up and pacing! This is new to me, she has previously got up and rummaged in drawers etc but got back to bed. I,m here at the computer and mum is still pacing up and down the hall. She stops and gets into bed I do likewise only for her to get straight back up and start the pacing again. She,s feeling about with her hands along the walls and sideboard and I don,t know what to do to help her. If anyone has experienced this and has any advice I,d glady listen/read. Could anyone tell me if this happens in early/moderate stage? Mum isn,t really registering that I am here with her. Mum starts the day by my being her daughter but usually I end up her sister. So confused myself to see her this way.
