Concentrate on the positive. You have time left with her and make the best of it. enjoy the time you have left together, and if she lives a long
time, you will have lots of good time together. It doesn't have to be a bad experience, a challenge it is for sure, but if your attitude is good, it
is catchy, everyone feels better.
My mother had a stroke that paralyzed her left side for her last fifteen years of life and she had a positive attitude, even though her life took a
hundred eighty degree turn. She was actually fun to be around and my stepfather and her were active yet. She had to quit working, but still liked to
cook. They bought some special stuff so she could do things, like a potato peeler, and some special cutting boards for doing veggies. She had a good
wheelchair and because she was most always in a good mood, friends and relatives picked her up to go church and shopping. She got a little religious,
but that helped her to enjoy her suffering, to have a positive attitude.
You are the one who needs to be positive to keep her attitude up and in a while, she will be positive and that will make you feel even better. I do
not like antidepressants but some people do need them, if they feel they do, then that is ok. You need to do what you have to do. But remember,
antidepressants block some of our cognative abilities so it may make it harder when she is home and needs help. Some peope detox them more than
others. Diet can control depression to a certain point, but attitude is the biggest way to adjust it. If you do go on antidepressants, make sure to
have someone you know watch you and let you know if you are having negative effects overall. You may not be able to tell yourself.
