What do I get? Mum suddenly out of the blue became very dizzy, so I had to get the paramedics in and spent an hour and a half running around dealing with everything mum needed, answering questions, and packing her off to hospital. It is 11pm here, and the hospital she's being taken to, there's no guarantee that they won't discharge her in the middle of the night. She's 84, had a stroke less than 18 months ago, and is often confused. I couldn't go with her because of my own health issues and my sister is 50 miles away.
I have no idea what will happen now, I should go to bed but what if they phone in the middle of the night to say she's coming home? Plus, if she's so dizzy she can't even stand up, how do they think I can take care of her when she outweighs me by about three stone.
Life sucks. I'm exhausted anyway because I never get enough sleep, now I've got even more to deal with, alone. There's not even anyone I can call.
