Si Mama ko.... :(

Sad kasi ang mama ko dati ang strong figure sa family namin.  Andun sya sa stage na paulit ulit sya ng sinasabi.  Hanggang ngayon lakwatsera si Mama matigas ang ulo.  Ilang beses na syang nawalan ng alahas at ng cellphone.  SUmungit din sya, Understandign talaga ang kailangan although sa totoo lang minsan nakakasagad sa pacencya lalo na pag feeling nya inaapi sya...pag pinagsasabihan sya na wag na sya maglalabas ng walang kasama.  mag seself pity sya at sasabihin na porke wala na syang silbi haisst.


Si Dad ko din nagsisimula na din

Mama is 68 yrs old and Dad is 75 yrs old

yung lola ko before she died. Mahirap pero sakyan mo lang. wag na wag mong kokontrahin kasi magcclash kayo.

Nung una.. mejo madalas lang makalimot ng mga bagay, saan niya ilagay, anong date na ba, anong gagawin niya.. eventually yung mga kwento naglalabo labo na.

She was very good in playing the organ, halo halo na din yung tinutugtog niya.

tas meron siyang mga specific na memories na lagi niyang kinekwento. Na bata pa siya nangyari. Nagmamano sa anak niya, di na marecognize ang mga apo.

Sumungit din, pero most of the time tahimik naman siya.

Pag nagkkwento, sinasakyan lang namin :)

maganda yung feature Ni Jessica Soho last Saturday lang regarding this topic "Dementia/Alzheimers". To TS, if you have time, you can download it sa youtube.

Naalala ko tuloy yung lola ko nung nabubuhay pa, may slight alzheimer na sya when she reached 75 years old. She died in her 80's.
isa sa naremember ko, medyo wala ng time frame sa utak nya.Like for example, My lola has been claiming na, na yung auntie/lola  ko daw (her very much younger cousin) ay teacher nya ynung high school. Then, natatamad na rin syang mamasyal or manood ng tv. Di na rin nya marecognize yung iba nyang kamag anak. Pati kaming mga apo nya, she has trouble na remembering our names. But yung mga episodes sa buhay nya nung bata pa sya ay klaro.

Love and understanding na need ng mga lola natin or parents pag nagkaganito sila. And we always talk to her na lang para at least maaliw sya.

i hope maraming mag post sa thread na ito regarding dementia...my mother too is suffering from it...ang mga previous na nakaregister sa utak nya nung wala pa syang dementia, un ang natatandaan nya.  however, un mga recent na information or day to day activities un ang madali nyang malimutan...

My lola (who's 89 years old) is suffering from Alzheimers naman. We didn't know that she's suffering from this until September 2011. Kala naman forgetful nalang talaga sya due to age but during one hospital vacation, nadiagnose sya with yun nga alzheimers. While at the hospital she would remove the dextrose on her own and not mind the blood rushing to the tubes. Basta gusto nya umuwi. Then she would demand we wheel her out of the room to the door and she'll hail a cab going somewhere. Maraming beses nya kaming tinarayan to the point nageeskandalo na sya sa room nya. Yung sigaw rinig hanggang corridor. There wer medicines prescribed and nakatulong naman actually. But kapag nakakalimutan sya painumin, she would turn wild again. Meron time inakyat nya yung gate namin kasi gusto daw nya pumunta sa Grace Park to buy something. Syempre ayaw namin kasi di na nya kaya. She used to go on her own sa States pero thats States. Iba ang treatment dun sa mga matatanda.

At first sobrang naaawa talaga ako and di ko alam pano sya lalapitan. Kasi lagi nakasigaw and masungit talaga. Pero syempre, wala naman kami magagawa kundi tanggapin nalang and isupport nalang sya sa mga gamot nya. Also, double time kami sa pagbabantay, naka diaper na rin sya kasi nalilimutan na nya when sya naiihi or napupupu.

Saan ba nagpapatingin pag ganito mga sis.. My friend kasi is so forgetful.. Ng college kami we treated it as a joke pero ngayong lumalala, seryoso na siya and it's mo laughing matter.. Hindi naman namin alam saan siya pwede magpatingin

This is a serious illness here in America, 6th leading causes of death, the brain shrink until part of it doesn't function well causing them not to remember things from the past or don't know what they're doing, depends on which part is affected, patience is the key to take care of this population...
