Helping Mom

by MichelleR on January 28, 2014

Today I thought I would be vocal on what it’s like to try and support and help my Mom.  My Mom is young but her body is giving out. Three weeks ago after visiting the doctor we learned she is down to 86 lbs. The doctor prescribed an appetite pill, finally! My Mom did fill the prescription and then decided she would read up on the prescription before starting the pill. Fast forward 3 weeks later and she still was not taking the pill and had not taken the time to read and review the side effects.

What’s doubly frustrating is my Mom is not busy. She rarely leaves her house, so I ask what could keep her from reading up on the side effects of the pill?

My sister and I try to help but she is stubborn and typically will push back. Sometimes I just don’t know what to do and I know I am not alone out there!
