Hi, just joined, just this month first time I started joining to this kind of forums.
Since a while that I thought about to find other people with parents with the same of my mother.
The stroke of my mother was more than 10 years ago, so Im not new on this, im not looking for any kind of advices, Im interested in talk with other people with similar experiences.
Ive not live this as a sad thing. Not at all. Its just the way it is. I mean, ive been with this so much time that its just the way it is.
And sometimes is funny, and interesting. Funny because my mother can be extremely funny, due her cognitive imblanace she can come up with hilarious stuff. And its pretty interesting see how her brain works.
She is not “completely lost” at all. Sometimes i read about other people things like they say “how i have to put on my clothes ?” or things like that, or hard things like that.
She have compulsive hoarding, the house is a mess, its hard to tell her “hey, why you dont put that there, and that there, and the house would look better”, its just hard to tell her that, and she gets angry, and its useless. Lately she has been better, but anyway the house is pretty messy,.
She have short memory problems, like “what i was looking for ?? i was going to tell you something but i dont know what”.
She talks a lot. She send weird messages, she wants to ask to someone in facebook “do you still have that you are selling ? how much ? this is my phone” but no, she writes long and strange messages that people should be so confused, using words and ways to construct sentences that are just oddly strange.
She is hard to stay with, i go to visit her, and sometimes is just hard to have a nice visit, she gets angry for little things, and is micromanaging, sometimes I get angry too, lately im trying to let this things pass.
I can talk about her a lot, i can even write a book about her (a good one).
Again, im looking to meet others, i think i should to talk more about her to others identify with her case, but its hard to condence all about her life, and ive been joining to other groups so ive been telling the same story over and over and over and over.
