June 2013

Mum hasn't changed much in recent months. I've been able to take her for two nights away in the country to see her cousin.

I still pick her up every Saturday and take her to my house for the day. Sometimes we go shopping, sometimes to the beach. I know that this will come to an end as she gets more difficult to manage. But so far I'm managing, though by the end of the day I'm exhausted from constantly watching her and doing everything for her.

On the positive side, the anti-psychotic medication seems to have got rid of the imaginary people and voices. (By the way readers, it is not caused by a UTI. Mum is under the care of a specialist and the psychosis is caused by the disease. Some people develop psychosis similar to schizophrenia and some don't).

Here she is at my place eating a baked dinner. She ate most of it, too.
