Hi there all Today I felt very irritated with one of the girls in the CH who virtually ignores me when I'm with Mum and acts like she knows her so well, cuddling her and sometimes telling me things about Mum like I don't already know. I may have been more annoyed because my Mum is being anti-me again at the moment, making snide comments behind the backs of everyone. I still cannot fathom how she can do this and then turn the charm on to a.n.other - she was giving me really nasty looks too and I wonder if I'm just some awful reminder of her old life hence the aggression - but going back tto the girl, she seems particularly ignorant and she also talks to other carers about my Mum in front of me like I don't count. Moan moan. All the other carers include me and don't try and take over. Very annoying, has anyone else felt this? On the medication side of things, the GP saw Mum and has decided to take her off Risperidone at nigh, starting her on sodium valproate instead, which is a modified release medication for bi-polar /epilepsy. They are giving it to her to try and regulate her mood. Does anyone have any experience of this? Many thanks.
