>>This is a long shot maybe your Mother subconciously is keeping herself ill so that you will have to take care of her, so that she wont lose her son, and be alone? If she is doing that she probably doesn't realise it, or want to.<<

You have a good point there, but I am her oldest daughter...she has no sons. My sisters all think she is intentionally manipulative, but I'm not sure. She may be dismissed on Monday and is terrified of going back to her apartment. It is very nice, but she is afraid that being alone will cause the depression to take hold. I cleaned her place out of all her whisky, narcotics and sleeping pills. Timing is terrible as we have out of town company coming Sunday, although at least that gives me an excuse that won't hurt her feelings for not being able to babysit her. And she has to start outpatient therapy the following day for about a month.

About the biochemical stuff. She also has neurological problems like shuffling gait, rigidity and leaning to one side when she walks. Also imbalance and urinary incontinence. They say it's not Parkinson's, but I think it's related to the depression somehow...

Take care,
Michelle
