- Loved one DX
Hello. My mother is getting worse by the weeks/months it seems. She lost her balance and fell while I was with her last week. I feel so terrible b/c I was unable to catch her. She can still eat most foods with her right hand, although she can only use a few fingers. Her speech is understandable most of the time but is slurred. Her upper body is getting weaker to he point its harder for her to lift herself. She can walk but has stiff legs and shaking. She was experiencing a needle like sensation in her foot. Is this normal? I see her Mondays and Tuesdays, her sister comes on wednesdays when she is not working but the rest of the week she is by herself until my father gets home. Although I only see her a few days the rest of the week I am constantly thinking of her. Wishing this woud all end and that she didnt have to suffer. She is only 52 years young. Never in my life could I imagine this would happen. I really don't want to take depression pills but its so hard for me to deal with this. I love her so much. I guess I just needed to vent. Thanks for reading.
