Hi there I have only managed, after 2 years, to build up the courage to write on this forum but I have just reached a point today of wanting to cry out to somebody. I am 23, my mum is 56 and was diagnosed at Xmas 2 years ago. She is now at a point of barely being able to put a full sentence together, is incapable of dressing and showering alone. This is so hard to see, when she once took so much pride in her appearance. I am getting married in just under 6 weeks and feel so sad because I always dreamed my mum would be there to support me with the planning and yet it has all been on my shoulders. She is so excited, which is the main thing, but I am worried she is going to become overwhelmed by the day and things will get worse. To be honest I have just found this so hard to deal with and feel heart broken everyday. I try to be positive and feel lucky that she is still here, but she isn't herself at all so I feel as though I've lost her already. It's like my mum is a stranger. Do these feelings ever disappear??? Sorry if I'm waffling...I have lots in my head!!!!
