my mom has a diesease that makes her stiff in the joints and her hands dont work well, i have to do basic everday things for her, like opening jars etc.> I would not wish this sort of thing on my worst of enemies. she gets worse everyday and loses weight like crazy, and i have to watch this happen infront of my eyes> I have 2 older syblings in university, who come home periodically, and arent as affected by this as i am, because they see her when shes happier, because shes happy to see them. Lately it seems like her spirit has broken and shes starting to give up on things, because she justr cant do them, fuck she cant really do anything. If anyone has ever witnessed someone going through anything like this, or anyone with a terminal illness at all, and had to live with them, do they have any suggestions, for anything. please
Hello, anybody out there
Hey I feel your pain i had to take care of my fathers mother on her worst of days (two months before she passed) I had to take care of her, cause no one else would. It was an amazing responsibility but it was so worth it. I had to literally do everything, shower her feed her, everything. No one would sit shiva for her after she passes, or anything. And, knowing that i helped a family member when they needed it was great thing to do. PM me if you want
I saw my dad burn up 40 years in 10. It's a long story but i held his hand while he died.
I'm out here.
i watched my grandfather slowly die from a head injury that caused memory loss. everytime id go to see him, he wouldnt remember who i was and it hurt so much because we used to be so close. he had stroke after stroke and eventually died from them. it was a horrific 6 year battle, but in the end it was a relief to see him go because he was just so sick... im here, love
