My Mom has AD and is getting increasingly hard to deal with.I wish nobody had to deal with this disease but it's nice to know that there are people somewhere that understand how I feel. My Mom's symptoms seem to have started the night I got married (coincidence?) It was the first time she fell and she's been doing it ever since. She has recently been having hallucinations and I have an appointment scheduled with her doctor but would like to know if this is normal for AD? Even when I show her that what she thinks is there, is in fact, not there, she gets angry at me and thinks I'm lying to her. She has lived in our guesthouse since August of last year. I do all her cooking since she tried to burn the guesthouse down with the microwave (did you know that that could happen?) I sure didn't. All she wants to do is watch tv, eat a little, and sleep alot. She stays mad at me about 75% of the time and I'm so stressed out that it's affecting everything in my life. I used to be easygoing, happy, smiley. Now I spend alot of time crying or trying not to cry. There are no support groups in my area and none of my friends are in the same situation. No one can understand unless you live with it too. I'm glad I found all of you.
