Hi, I think I need a moan well not a moan but to offload. Crying at the moment as I went to see Mam this morning and feel so sad this afternoon. She wanted to go to the shops which sounds easy but is a major trip involved as she is very incontinent. So a trip to the shops involves covering my car seat up with layers and layers, then she had difficulty getting in it, then she's cold, then needs a wee and is confused as to why she doesn't need bread and milk etc and then we need to find a loo, so I changed the subject. Walking also is very slow due to her edema of her legs and feet but I don't think she grasps how hard it is to go out but remembers going to the shops etc. So now I feel awful and upset like she's in a prison when I know she is looked after. I would love to take her out but it's so hard and hard fitting in the time as it isn't nearby her home either. When Mam started saying about going out other ladies were then asking how do we get out we want to get to the shops, very sad. Sianey.
