My mum has parkinsons and my dad has cared for her for 20 years. She recently went into hospital and was in 6 weeks during which time she went worse. The hospital refused to let her out without a 'care package' coz my dad was clearly not coping (he has his own health issues and is 77).
Anyway my mum has been out 3 days and is making the most unholy scene about the whole situation. She hates the carers coming into her. She is making huge fuss about everything and is very tearful. She is shouting at my dad and I all the time and demanding he does things for her that he is just not capable of doing. She is almost hysterical. She was ranting about only having 2 clean nighties this afternoon and my dh said it is almost as if she needs a slap to wake her up to how unreasonable and ridiculous she is being. We all appreciate how difficult it is for her but she is being really hard to be around.
She does take a low dose anti depressant but i am thinking of calling the doctor tomorrow to see if he can give her something to calm her down. Do you think I am being unreasonable?
