Sorry, I did know that. It's too easy to mix up everyone's families on line. I remember reading about some natural remedies for alzheimers awhile ago. I'll look around tomorrow to see if I can find them. I'll let you know what I find.

Seriously, if she does have alzheimers, your family is going to need a really good support system. This can go on for a long time, or it goes very quickly. Either way, it's going to tear your heart out. I'll look for links tomorrow for you and I'm here for you gf. Try to get some sleep, ok?

I know. I am an only child for her too, so it will all fall on my shoulders. I just cant imagine the difficulty I may be facing.

I think at this point she knows something is wrong, she knows shes forgetful, but brushes it off. The cabin was shut up for a few months and my kid saw and caught 6 scorpions and a few centepedes. My mom said oh yeah they have been around. She asked why she didnt get an exterminator since shes been there a month already and she said she didnt want someone in the house.

Its a cabin rental, people are always in the house!

Sounds like a whole lot of stress, Flavapor. I'm sorry you're dealing with it.

All of us can be forgetful at times. It would be easy to run a bath, forget and let it overflow. 8( Hopefully, that's all it is.

As far as not wanting to have someone in, maybe she meant while she was there.

Hoping it's a temporary stress and not a long term problem. It's hard to know what to do, if anything, and when to do it when you're in that position. You'll be in my thoughts.

I can only hope its stress but... today she called me on the way home from GA and asked me which road she needed to take. She goes up there every few months and has never had that problem before.

Then, my kid calls me and tells me that the reason the house was so hot was because the gas fireplace was on. Apparently it was on low and the thing goes on and off as it reaches temp. Anyway she was spraying bug spray and saw the flame, ever so low under the logs, so she turned it off.

My mom was there for a month, and it could have been on that entire time for all I know. She kept saying it was so hot there and she couldnt figure out how to work the thermostat, which is a basic arrow up or arrow down hot or cold type thermostat. Instead of asking the neighbor, who would have come over and done it, she suffered the entire month till my kid got there and turned it on.

I am not sure what to do, if I confront her about getting checked for it, she wont confide these incidents to me any more. She is suspicious of everyone, she will think I am trying to take away her freedoms. If I just monitor her, she could possibly hurt herself.

I would like to talk to my grandmother (her mom) about it since they live a few miles apart, but she is 94 (going on 64)and I dont want to put stress on her or worry her. I did say to her a few months ago that mom is getting so forgetful and she agreed, but I dont want her to be burdened with it either cause my mom can be pretty mean and nasty when she wants to be and my grandmother is a tenderheart.

Sounds nutty, but I am putting the question out to the universe tonight to guide me to the right path.

Re: >>>>Sustainable Living PLUS Canning and Dehydrating Food<<<<
Flav, if your mom had the gas on and didn't know it, you HAVE to make the appointment. If nothing else, do you have a doc you trust? If you do, make an appointment to talk to them yourself. Don't take your mom. I know the spot you're in, but it's become a safety issue now. My great-grandmother had it when my mom was a little girl. They didn't know what it was then. My mom and uncle weren't allowed to eat ANYTHING she cooked, because my grandparent's didn't know what she might have put in it. She lived across the street.

Hubs grandmother had it and they had to take away the knobs from the stove. It was gas and she would always have them blazing. They also had to take away her lighter's and matches. She would have to ask someone to light her cig's and they would have to watch her.

Hon, I just googled alzheimers and so many good site's popped up. I couldn't pick one to post here. Check out webMD first, they're usually the easiest to read. Also, the Mayo clinic will have a good site.

I know you don't want her mad at you, but if she does have alzheimer's, this is just the beginning. What if it's something else, equally serious. Brain tumors can have similar symptons. Please, Flav, make the appt.

Flav, check out this site. There is alot of info that will help you decide if it is alzheimers. I only read some of it, but the 10 signs are right on. The thing is, you have to be totally honest when you consider the answers. It's been a long time since I've read up on it, but this site is a good place to start.

I know your family is into natural medicine. I don't have alot experience with it. There aren't any naturalpaths here. I don't know if there is anything natural that can be done, but I know you'll find it if it's there! Just don't give up and don't wait. Sweetie, I can't tell you how my heart feels for you and your family.grouphug

Thanks Mama.

Made more soap yesterday with my soap buddy! We made more salt bars and these smell great too. They are rainforest and I put deep green and brown in them. They smell very walk in the woods earthy, she hates the smell, the kids and I think its the best one of the day, and we made another one that was pink, purple and yellow and scented it with something she brought, she loves it and I think it smells like gas station bathroom! It is such a sickeningly sweet floral fragrance like when they have to much in those tiny bathrooms and you have to hold your breath and pee fast! I hope the scent in that diminishes ALOT, otherwise, she can have the whole batch! Its just gross.

Funny how different people smell different stuff.

In addition to all thats going on, the rain we have been having AGAIN is just destroying my garden. Everything is getting so yellow, fruit dropping, an all around mess! The pigs are loving it, they are getting lots of veggies! They got my entire supply of corn yesterday, we pulled it all. The weather just totally ruined it.

On a good note, the loofah sponges are growing like weeds, one of them is almost 2 ft long! Now thats a loofah!

My crop has probably floated away today! Non stop rain since I got up this morning. Comes in big storm gusts, then settles down to a steady rain but enough is enough. North Fl is supposed to get 20 inches, I hope we dont get anywhere near that much, but I think there will be lots of localized flooding tomorrow with all this rain the past few days.

The poor pigs are in a mud pit. I have pallets in the covered area which is about 10 by 10 and hay on them but everything else is mud half up their leg. They probably love it, but it was to nasty to stick around, just toss the food and run for the house.

I did check it out and honestly only one for sure is a dead on ringer, then two more are iffy.

The loses or misplaces things often is a definate, although she can retrace herself, she does this multiple times a day, everyday.

The gets paranoid, scared, fearful, depressed one rings true to a point, although, she has been depressed and fearful of her heart condition, which is a fibrilation issue, and I would be depressed and fearful to so I cant really count that, just the paranoid part.

The withdrawing from friends and family thing is a maybe too, but given the fact that she always signs up for everything then bitches that shes so busy and has no time to herself, she made a resolution to stop volunteering everywhere all the time and is trying to stick to it. Her appt schedule used to get me tired just looking at it, so I really cant count that one to much either in my opinion, and if I did that would be two out of ten.

I spoke with her today, she went to my grandmothers for dinner and she sounded perfectly fine and told me that she should have left the cabin when she was supposed to and none of this would have happened, and I should go ahead and have the cabin people fix the damage.

This is somewhat typical, she makes the mess, trys to fix it, gets bored with it and asks me to deal with it. I am used to it at this point, been doin it for years. Its a good thing that I dont get stressed over that kind of stuff.

Being a property mgr, I pretty much deal with problems all day long, its just second nature to me after all these years.

something i found fantastic when chickens were knee deep in mud was what we in nz call 'mulch' which is branches etc chopped up small in a machine. people buy it to put on their gardens to stop weeds and look attractive. I was able to get lots of it for free, and it was great in the chicken area to soak up the mud and get the chickens out of the mud, and when the weather fined up, they scratched around in it for insects etc depending on what trees are mulched up, it can smell lovely too..

Hey, Nine's! How are things up there? I've been reading about the storm and hoping Flavapor is ok, too. If Mama is reading later...things ok where you are? It's getting really hot here and I think the ac went out tonight. Hopefully it just froze up.

So far my container garden is coming along. Even with the high temps, my tomatoes have got blossoms. I did have to spray them tonight, though. The lemon cukes and wax beans are doing well, too. I want to get a couple of watermelons planted this week and I'm going to try planting corn. Everyone here says it's too late, and it may be, but I figure for $2, who cares! I'll give it a shot. Gotta get the zuchinni, green beans and yellow squash in too.

Hey TB, it sounds like you've been super busy since you got home. I've been reading about your temps and it looked really miserable! I hope your AC isn't out. That heat can be dangerous.

Glad your garden is doing great. You should be real proud. I've been a slacker this year in mine. Usually have an acre and a half or two, but things kept coming up and the thought of adding more to it was more than I wanted to do, so I'll be happy with the smaller area this year.

Stupid I know, but theres a person that grows pretty much the same as I do, and I can trade eggs for the things I didn't plant.

Why would it be too late to plant corn for you? It doesn't get that cold til a lot later does it? And you have to water anyway, so wonder why people say it's too late. Or maybe the length of sun? Hmmm.

That's going to be some fine eating when you get your produce from your things. Bet it's a lot easier with containers too. Probably more watering though.

Things are great here, thanks for asking. I found something to motivate Little Dog and all of a sudden his hearing has become perfect! It's a miracle!

When we're outside, pupster is always at my side and it's hard to get used to having a dog that roams away, has selective hearing, and looks for trouble. Come means nothing. Put a leash on, call come, give a pull, nothing. Exercise in futility, so I went to the next plan.

I made beef jerky dog treats. Bought one of those crinkly foil bags of all natural treats, made in USA and ingredients from USA. Took them out and stored them though and put my treats in. When Little Dog would start to follow his nose to neverland and plot how to get beyond the fence, I'd call "Little Dog, treat time," and slap the bag and crinkle it.

HAHAHA!! You should see those little legs fly across the yard. His big ol ears flopping as he runs. Silly little thing. That sucker can hear like you wouldn't believe now. It's a real motivator. He's still nasty to pupster though, darn it. Still working on that one. I believe in miracles. 8)

Poor pupster, he just can't get no respect!! (Bad Rodney Dangerfield impression!) How's the masked one? Don't worry about the smaller size of your garden, it's too stinkin' hot up there this year and you guys aren't getting much in the way of rain, either.

I don't have to water too much with the containers, but I'm doing it with a gallon pitcher so I can kind of keep track of the water I'm using. The problem I'm having is finding enough containers to plant in! I had a bunch of plastic coffee cans saved for something else and I've gone through all them already! I'm about ready to go buy some cheap buckets!

Sorry Flava that your crop got ruined. I know the feeling, as my broccoli is large and laughing at me with no buds.

As tough as you are OG, I don't believe for a minute your brocoli is laughing at you. If it is, you'll have the last laugh. chuckle

Wouldn't that be the ultimate doom, having our veggies laughing at us? Kind of like "Little Shop of Horrors"!!LOL

I don't think ANY of OG's veggies would be brave enough to laugh at her!
