Just back from spending a long day with mom; I took her on a road trip. She does indeed seem to have Sundown syndrome. She wasn't making a lot of sense on the way home.

My brother hadn't spoken to me since election day-we're on opposite sides of the fence but I don't get into any political discussions with him. He just chose to spit venom that night, and I decided to get off the crazy train. Now I have to deal with him in order to get my mom's affairs in order (he's on all of her bank accounts), and it's not going to work because he needs to spend his energy on healing. I'm not sure how to proceed. This is going to be interesting.

My brother will be 54 tomorrow. He's been pushing his family away with his drinking over the past few years; my niece and nephews don't seem to be too concerned about him. I guess he's made his's tough because we used to be very close.

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

I am sorry you're dealing with all of this. I'm keeping you and your family in my prayers.

hugs too,

I'm so sorry Sad. You are dealing with alot, and it most probably will get worse before it gets better.

You may want to go ahead and get yourself added to all her accounts, and discuss with your brother about changing your Mom's POA and executor to yourself if he is currently the primary.

I dealt with all this same stuff for many many years, and it's not easy. Make sure you see YOUR doctor on a regular basis, and mention both your Mom's and your brother's conditions.

Stay strong sweetie.
