We had mum here out of hospital as hated the thought of her In hospital my sister didn't offer wanted her to go to a care home and my dad, I understand but we wanted her To have a good Christmas with maybe a chance to stay here see if we can cope, she is my mum and I love her so much. But feeling guilty We are coping but only just, We are fine with the daily looking after but she follows me everywhere can't even go for a break. She also keeps us up all night we are so tired we get fours hours if lucky a night, she wonders the house all night, wakes me and Hubbie up five times a night looking to have a cigarette. We allow her only if we are around as she would be a fire risk. We have a special needs son she even wakes him up which isn't fair he's such a caring child he gets out of bed and warns us when she's up around. We have seven big dogs she knows she's not allowed in their area but has been going in looking for cigarettes. I'm scared they will knock her over. I feel guilty as we can't live like this.
