Honestly, don’t know about the Power of Attorney, maybe ring Alzheimer’s Society? This bit will sound bad but, if your mother’s main concern is saving money, perhaps telling her that if she doesn’t accept carers her husband will have to go in residential care may give her a nudge. Do they have a Soc...
I’ll share 2 if I may. When my ptsd was very bad I really struggled with supermarkets, panic would be unbearable. I was advised that once I got to the end of each aisle, go & look at the exit & remind myself I can just leave at any time. When being treated for my ptsd more recently, it was noticed t...
Oh vent away, I’ve done it many times, you have to have somewhere you can do it. Caring for someone with dementia can be extremely frustrating, just when you think you’ve got things sorted, another problem pops up & it’s all change. If there are any practical aspects you’re struggling with, feel fre...

Take care

Good luck Karen. The more I've posted here the less I've felt the overwhelming need to cry that was really getting the better of me again about 4 or 5 weeks ago.

Best wishes, David
I hope things are still a little better for you
I have very great sympathy with you here Karen: I can identify with the simple need to cry. Occasionally, when I feel it's safe to do so, I'll retreat to my room and listen to a song from the past. If I'm lucky(!) the tears will come and I'll feel just that bit of relief I needed. I know our situat...
Hi, a quick reply ‘cos it’s late and I’m tired.
What you’ve posted is very familiar. Adult Daughter with BPD, assessed for autism age 9, told autistic traits only. Sensory issues, friendship problems etc.
Will try & reply further tomorrow, in the meantime, if you want to dm me, feel free
Take care
