Have I overdone it?

Posted: 03/09/2014 at 00:28

Yes Mike, I think you may have over done it a bit. You will have to learn to pace yourself. I know, from experience, how hard this can be, but you will only make yourself bad again.

Verdun, ( and anyone else who is looking after a parent suffering from dementia) I recommend that you read the book called " The little girl in the radiator " by Martin Slevin.

My OH and I looked after my mother before she passed away, she had dementia, and this book explained more about her state of mind than any of the doctors or specialists did. It's very amusing, in parts, but sad in others.

It's nothing to be embarrassed about.

I'm in council property, (it's housing association now,actually), and its in our tenancy agreement that we have to keep the garden tidy. I would complain to them. 

I would also talk to the neighbourhood police, they deal with ANY neighbourhood problems,(or so they say).

David, I believe Mike is no longer on the site.

As my mother used to say:-

Patience is a virtue,

Possess it if you can,

Seldom found in women,

Never found in man.

It wouldn't have been too bad if they had stayed inside when they got in, but she kept throwing him out, ( he doesn't live there), he would drive off and then come back about 10 minutes later and it would all start again.

His car is ouside now though.

I slept fairly well again last night, (11-3, ) got up and had a cup of horlicks,went back to bed at about 4 hoping to get another couple of hours, but neighbours across the road came home at about 5 O'clock, arguing in the street. I gave up at 5-30 and got up.

Boy was I mad !!!

David, I worked permanent nights, for 12 years, ending in 2012, thought I had got away with the change. Maybe it's caught up with me now.


You have my sympathy, Pauline. I could never get used to sleeping in the daytime...but of course it wasn't helped by changing shifts every week.

I couldn't sleep as soon as I got home from work, I used to have my main meal about 8 O'clock in the morning and go to bed at 1 pm. I would then sleep until 7.30 ,when I got up ready for work.
