ANY tips on sleeplessness.... My mom gets really confused when she doesn't sleep and I'm very short tempered which is NOT a good way to handle her. HELP....If there is a side effect from any drug, she gets it. She is on an anti depressant and Xanax and that's it. Seraquel and Exelen were horrid.... Last night we had turkey AND warm milk.... HA-HA....Rested from 10 until 3:30am... Then talked all night....She doesn't walk well so I know she's not getting enough exercise, but what can I do? I've only been her full time caretaker since the end of June.

Re: sleepless in Pompano Beach
Jenny, Sadly you are very new to this caregiver business, I suggest you read as much as you can from the many books out there and the LBDA.org website. Sometimes caregiving from home is not always possible, depending where your Mom is in her illness she could be like this for years so finding a coping way now is in your best interest as well as her's !
