So much of what I read on these posts I can apply to what is happening to my Mum, but sometimes, because she often is so very normal, and appears so normal, I doubt that there is anything wrong at all -even though there most obviously IS ....and this is how I spend my days -HAS SHE, HASN'T SHE .. Is this all part of it? Is this what they call 'denial'? I don't want to feel like this anymore -I just want to settle down and look after her. Would anyone reading this be willing to describe to me how it was for them in the early stages, and how it changed for them over time? Did everyone feel like this? Thanks.
