Re: DM and assisted living/living w\snafu

unpacking all her stuff is going to take time .... by the end of packing we'd both gotten to the point of just pack it, I don't want to sort anymore

Re: DM and assisted living/living w\snafu

Packing is hard, not just physically, but emotionally. How did your mother do with it?

Re: DM and assisted living/living w\snafu

Lucy - DM was packing on and off for about 6 weeks.

There was some stuff I wanted to get rid of, but ... I knew how hard this was on her. I told her that anything she wasn't certain about to keep .... she could always get rid of it later, if she didn't want it - but once it was gone, it's gone




The other night she said it still doesn't seem real to her ....

She's been happy - we've gotten out a few different times .... went back to hometown today & she got to see friends

Things are going well.

She's found a church, a few activities she can get to on her own ....and seems to be gradually making a few friends

Re: DM and assisted living/living w\snafu

Has she developed a decent social life?

What about your siblings? Have they been to see her?

Re: DM and assisted living/living w\snafu

Decent, no

Sibs....neither one ....

Older sister visited before DM moved, wanted some of the "family" things and didn't want to take no for an answer...because DM expected this behavior, she'd already had me move things to my place

according to DM my twin hasn't admitted that I nor DS exist to her since twins son bullied mine so bad X-mas years ago ....
