  • Sat, 08:08: Been kept up half the night because mum w #Alzheimer's keeps inventing one crisis after another. Kinda like before, but now 24/7 and louder.
  • Sat, 10:10: "A___ is gone." says Mom, freaking out. "She's somewhere else and fine, but you choose not to listen." "Yes, I choose." "There you go then."
  • Sat, 10:15: Can't make her shower. Can't make her eat. Can't make her listen. She fights. Irony is, in much of her life, she acted helpless. #Alzheimers
  • Sat, 10:19: She kicks the dog. THE DOG. I always knew she hated animals, but this. WTF. Thing is, I ALWAYS knew this cruelty was in her. #Alzheimers
  • Sat, 10:20: So never tell me this "all mothers show unconditional love" bullshit. #mothersday #Alzheimers #narcissism #dysfunctional
  • Sat, 10:26: Feels like keeping vigil over the walking dead. Please don't bite and infect the others. Don't destroy the house. And don't kick the dog.
  • Sat, 11:17: She's ASLEEP! Peace at last! For now! Dilemma whether to sleep myself or get to the stuff I need to. #Alzheimers
  • Sat, 11:19: It's like having the hypervigilance needed around newborns again, except this one is 65 years old. #Alzheimers
