Lawd today, I need a meeting. An acquaintance of mine suggested I give someone from program a call and get to one. I believe they are right. A whole lot of childhood issues are coming up right now as I try to figure out how to hold on to my life and take care of my Mom at the same time. To be honest with you, she is not making this easy for me but she's only doing what she knows how to do. I literally have four days to figure out how to get care for her while I'm L.A. next week. A couple of people suggested Assisted Living and that might not be a bad idea on a temporary basis. I contacted a place where she could stay for a minimum of 30 days and I will be going to take a look at it later today. I'm gonna tell my Mom she's going to camp. lol. It certainly would give me a chance to breath and the space to really figure some things out. This whole care taking thing is more than a notion.
First we have to get her out of that "facility". We had a team meeting yesterday and wore the social worker down so she was ready to request a release from the doctor. The doctor no one has ever seen. Ghost doctor. He's supposed to sign the release papers today and I won't take no for an answer. We found out yesterday from the dietician that my mother is not supposed to be eating certain foods because of a certain medication she is taking. The "facility" has been serving her food from that list almost everyday. Let him try to keep her there...I will go off!! The nice little good daughter everyone has been seeing the past three weeks will turn into Linda Blair from the Exorcist. I will shut that facility down!!! I could probably start some sh*t right now, but I want to get my mom out of there first.
I've been up since 5:15AM. Can't sleep. My mind is racing. So much to do. Of course I had to call my sweetie. He always knows exactly what to say to make it all better. I love you Danny, have a wonderful day.
