am i crazy?

thats what she asked me. my mother.....when she called me just now. she said that they took her car and her bicycle. i said gently...i know mother i know she said oh who told you? did i? yes mother you did.

she said am i crazy? pam (my sister) treats me like im crazy. no, no mother youre not crazy. youve gotten older and youve had the stroke and that makes ppl get very forgetful sometimes but they dont realize that theyve become that way. youre just really forgetful now but not crazy. i asked her again to be patient with pam, shes doing her best.

could i feel any sadder for my mother? not at this moment, no.

she said that she wanted to come back here. i told her she can. just let me know when and ill get you.

before she hung up she said...thank you. thank you for telling me im not crazy.


  1. I am sorry to hear that you are going through such a rough time. I can't even imagine what it must be like for you or anyone else with an elderly parent who is losing their mind.
    I think it is great that you are trying to be so supportive for both your sister and your mom. You and your family will be in my duas.

  2. thanks. the duaa means everything. its so hard. not only is is hard to see my mother this way but i know its the beginning of her end.
