For a year now my Mom has been experiencing dementia/schizophrenia events. She lives 11 miles away but that does not hold her back.
She can call 24/7 cursing me, accusing me of being in her home, stealing from her, you name it.
I was diagnosed with RRMS in 2008. My health has declined with every stressful life episode. I walk/move using a rolater now. Losing my 20 year career to a couple mergers, loss of health insurance even state Medicaid due to receiving SSDI, an appendicitis, loss of 5 yr term boyfriend, car accident (someone crashing into me in an intersection totaling my vehicle) once before MS this during MS-both times suck, now dealing with her dementia and my MS.
I say she's my worst enemy because the continuous bad calls. I cringe each time the phone rings. My friends say just turn your phone off. I can't, she'll call police for a "wellness check" and I can't afford penalties for false alarms.
It has deeply affected me. No sleeping, eating, showering, house chores, without her abusive calls. Today 5 calls so far and one visit.
My Brother who works out of town came over today bringing the dog and her. She requires 24/7 attention. He gave my 80 yr old Dad a break. He left for 20 minutes to get lunch and for me to play with the dog. She fell asleep for 5 minutes woke up screaming at me that I did something to my Brother then cried. I tried to remind her he was coming back but she was inconsolable. Luckily he returned quckly and she cried take me home.
Residences will not take her because of her combative vulgar behavior. I talked to a facility who said "she'll have to die at home".?!?!?!
She's loudly accused my Dad of an affair, my Brother of moving, on and on and on...
In the meantime my health has deminished. I fall often a corner of a cabinet to my ribs, falling backwards my head to the wall, my knees on concrete...My mid back pain crippling me to a crawl. I even thought laying on the floor after the head bang my only way out is my death. My prayers have not helped. I've even begged God for help. I've been foresaken. Now I guess just wait while laying on the floor running a mental injury inventory after a fall?
