Mental Illness
<p>Caregiving for Dementia Mental illness Episode #56 There’s not a whole lot of show notes for this one. This entire episode has been on the most severe form of mental illness. You ask what the most severe form of mental illness? Well, the most severe form of mental illness is suicide. Family has not only been hit by mental illness, but it has also been hit by the most severe form of menta l illness. In this episode, I talk a good deal about suicide, my opinion on suicide, my opinion on life. Suicide is wrong. When you have a society that believes that you come from an ape, you have a society that has no accountability for anything, it does. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. I’ll say that again, suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Suicide doesn’t fix any problem that you may face in life. It’s not a fix for someone not going out with you, it’s not a fix for money problems, Suicide is not a fix. Death comes fast enough on its own you don’t need to rush it along. Even after you die there’s still accountability for your life here on earth. You can’t live 80, 90 even 100 years and that’s all there is to it. Life cannot be the end! I agree that life is hard. I agree that life has its problems. Lord knows I’ve had mine, but living through the hard times makes the good times even better. There’s got to be someone in your life that you can talk to if you’re considering suicide. If your problems are to the point that you considering suicide find a friend, a coworker, a teacher, your parents, even your kids find someone to talk to if you don’t have anyone like that that you can share your feelings with, then the national suicide prevention hotline number is 1-800-273-8255 and you can always reach them as well by chat at www.suicide prevention lifeline.org. Give them a call. Give them a chat. If you don’t have anyone in your life that you can talk to about your problems start a podcast about your problems. Talking about your problems, whether it be with someone or in a podcast really helps, I know this podcast is help me tremendously dealing with what mom is going through with her dementia. Find someone to talk to, find something that you enjoy doing, anything at all to distract you from your problems. But whatever you do, don’t, don’t commit suicide things will get better. They will get better with time.</p>

Scared Caregiver
<p>Caregiving for Dementia A Scared Caregiver Episode # 55 O:55 The Opening 0:56 – 5:40 I’m talking here in this episode about waking up at 3 AM after falling asleep for about a half hour in finding Mama on the floor, because she’s rolling out of bed. I talk a bit about being scared because not only did she roll out of bed and onto the floor, but we found her lying in a pool of blood. You see, she broke her nose when she hit the floor and any time you break your Nose there is a little bit of blood. 5:40 - 6:30 Family wanting to call 911 and our discussion about whether or not we should call 911. 6:30 -7:10 Finding out where all the blood was found on Mama. 7:10 – 8:33 The family is fortunate enough to have a registered nurse in the family that you can call and talk to any time day or night. 8:34 – 9:50 Being panicked getting upset and upsetting the one that your caregiving for . 9:50 – 12:16 Mamas age having a whole lot to do with being worried that anything happens like her falling out of bed could be very fatal. 12:16 – 13:45 Worrying about whether or not mama broke any other bones evaluating mom for broken bones. 13:45 – 14:30 Being sore and being really slow. After falling out of bed. 14:30 – 15:36 comparing mom’s comparing mom, breaking her nose and 85 to my own broken nose at the age of 16. Headaches, black eyes, looking like a raccoon. 15:37 – 16:42 Questioning how Mama fell out of bed. 16:42 – 20:00 things that happen after all the pressure is gone after getting mom cleaned up and coming down from everything. What we do, what we didn’t do, what we may do what we may or may not do, that kind of thing. 20:00 – 25:02 after all the pressures gone and everything said and done, you start second-guessing yourself as to what you did what you didn’t do. Being glad that it wasn’t the only one in the house when this all happened, makes it a whole lot easier when somebody else’s help and get it is to do it by yourself. It’s kind of hard to hold someone up clean someone up and evaluate the situation. All by yourself. 25:02 -25:51 A promotional audio clip for September 30 a big day for all podcasters International Podcasters Day. 25:51 – 26:50 The close of the show.</p>

Mama And The Day Elvis Died
<p>Mama, and the day Elvis died Episode # 54 In this episode of : Care Giving for Dementia I share some stories of the summer time as a kid. One of those stories is how I found out that Elvis Presley had died. I have a story of a ride on a car hood. The story of how Mama taught herself how to crochet. As well as some camping stories that we did when I was a kid. When I was a kid you have heroes, people you look up to, people you’d like to be. Well for me one of these people with Elvis Presley. Not only did I like his music but also like quite a few of these movies. I was a huge fan of Elvis ever since I can remember and still are today. In this episode, I tell who told me, where I was at, and what I was doing when I found out that Elvis had died. I have quite a few childhood memories, some good some bad. One of those good stories I tell in this episode is about a car ride my brother took on the hood of a car. When I was coming up, Mama always was making things. Whether it be sewing something together, painting a picture with her aretechs or making something with yarn or threat. I have several of the bedspreads and things that Mama crochet one of which I could really tell she was losing the no how to crochet. I know Mama was losing the know-how because Mama was not his particular with this last one, as she always was. When I was just a young kid, my stepfather bought a camping trailer to where he could go hunting in the winter but in the summer time we took the camper, our bikes, and a go kart and went camping for the weekend. In this episode, I tell the story of some camping trips that we took with this go kart some of the rides and we had some the fun that we had with Mama and to go kart. I also mention in the episode that their 6 of us kids. Mama has 6 grandkids, not including my son, she has for great grandkids. Some of whom have come to see mom, and some have not. I talk a little bit about the ones who haven’t been around whether or not mom would recognize who they are. She also has a grandson coming to see her now that she may or may not recognize only because he’s not around all the time. He has been up to see her, but he’s not here all the time, so she may not recognizing when he comes to the door.</p>

Being Forgotten
<p>1st off, let me assure everyone that Mama is still with us, so that is not the reason why I haven’t put a podcast out in about 5 weeks. We’ve had some devastating changes in mom this past month, but for the most part she’s holding her own. When your child, you don’t think that one day your parents will forget who you are. I don’t know about you but when we were kids. Every once in a while when we were talking to mom about something, she would end up calling the role, in other words, she name off a couple of us kids name instead of the one that she was actually talking to. I didn’t think anything about it, it was just something that happened every once in a while. Looking back on it now, though I wonder if that wasn’t the 1st actual signs of Mama having dementia. I’ve said before the podcast of Mama knew something was wrong, long before any rest of us did, including her doctors. This past month there’s been some devastating changes in mom. I called it devastating changes because there are now times that Mama forgets who I am. I think that may have a lot to do with the fact that Stephanie’s out of school for the summer. Stephanie’s been doing a lot for mom throughout the summer, that has really given me a huge break. I didn’t have to run every time Mama needed something. Stephanie was been able to take care of a lot of that for me, once we got mom to let her do some things for her. So I backed off throughout the summer, except for when Mama needed to be moved from place to place. Stephanie just doesn’t have the muscle to move mom from place to place, throughout the summer, there’s been times when Mama didn’t want me doing things for her, she’d rather have Stephanie do some things for her. We now have 3 weeks and Stephanie goes back to work, and I’m wondering how much of a hard time, I’m going to have getting back into being the full-time caregiver for Mama, when Stephanie goes back to work. Even if I do have a hard time getting back into becoming the full-time caregiver it’ll be fine. When things need done. They just need done. If the one that your caregiving for doesn’t like it, then they just don’t like it. You have to do things to keep them healthy for as long as you can. No matter whether what. We may have an interesting start to the school year. I’m sure it’ll take time for Mama to get used to me taking over again. But I’m sure that eventually she’ll get used to me again, she may or may not know who I am all the time. But she’ll get to the point where she realized that I’m the only one here in the house with her. She may not like it for a while, but she will eventually get used to me again. I’m sure.</p>

Care Giving Pressure
<p>In this episode of caregiving for dementia I talk a little bit about caregiver pressure. Caregiver pressures to pressure that you have as you care for someone with any kind of physical or mental disability. I talk about life pressure and the pressure that you have that you put on yourself as you care for someone else. The pressure builds and comes to where it just explodes and you jump on anybody and everybody that’s around. This was the case I found myself into with my son the other night I jumped all over him for something that he may or may not be able to control. I felt like he didn’t care, wasn’t doing anything to help the problem, was creating more pressure for me. When I leave the house for a few hours I get to feeling like I’m the one that needs to be there to take care of mom. I get the feeling that it’s my responsibility not someone else’s to take care of her. The longer I’m out the board the feeling gets that I’m the one that needs to be home so the pressure and the stress start to build. I don’t always leave the house because of this stress that it builds the pressure that it builds when I leave. There’s all kind of pressure there’s all kinds of stress in life. Some of the stress and pressure is self-induced. Some of the other pressure is just life stress in general. It don’t always get away from the pressure and the stress totally. A lot of the times things that you do to relieve the stress and relieve the presser adds a different kind of stress or pressure to you. I think that’s a lot of the reason why it has taken me a year and a half to put out 52 episodes of this podcast because deadlines add pressure. Life has enough stress and pressure that we don’t need to add stress to our lives of having a deadline for everything that we do in life. And don’t get me wrong I’m enjoying this podcast I enjoy coming in talking to you. Meeting a deadline adds undue stress to an already stressed situation. I honestly think stress and pressure starts back at the first grade. When you start school, the teacher gives you homework to do by a certain deadline. The deadline is what starts the pressure of having something done on time. Pressure starts at a very young age and you try to find different ways of relieving that stress. For me I started smoking at 14. Made me feel big made me feel like a man. Now that I’m in my 50s I’m paying for that mistake of picking up the first cigarette that I enjoyed so much that made me and cough so bad. In your 50s and 60s sometimes even in your 40s you start paying for the things that you did coming up through life.You find yourself throughout life paying for things that you did as a kid. You find yourself in a certain spot or certain place for a very long time. You find yourself having to move out of that certain spot due to the fact of some things that you did in life. I’ve said all this just to say that stress and pressure of life can never really seem to get away from it all together. It seems to follow you no matter where you go what you do or how you do it. The things that we do to relieve this pressure of life doesn’t always relieve that pressure altogether. It may relieve it for a time but you may end up paying for it later on in life. I don’t always leave the house to get away from the pressure because it creates more pressure although it may be a different kind of pressure it’s still pressure. I don’t have any answers to get completely away from the stress the pressure of caregiving. I don’t have any answers to get away from the life pressure. Yes you couldn’t go away for weekend, you can go be by yourself for a while, but I have come to realize that the pressure still that of be there no matter what, where, when, or how you try to deal with it. We just got a deal with what life hands us the best we can, the easiest way we can and go on with life.</p>

Losing Spunk
<p>Losing Spunk Episode # 51 In this episode of Care Giving for Dementia, I talk a little bit about the time I got stuck in Atlanta, Georgia airport when I was 14/15 years old. The trouble I had trying to catch the plane from Atlanta, Georgia the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania just to come home for Christmas one year. And the fact that I would probably still be Atlanta, Georgia if my mother had not been is spunky as she was. You see, Mama was the type of person who just had this look, a look that told you, no matter who you were, that you were going to do, what Mama wanted you to do. I honestly believe that Mama could get the President United States to do what she wanted as well. She just had that look that meant she meant business, and you were not going to change her mind, no matter who you were. I also talk about the fact that this devastating disease called, dementia has taken the person that took on a big airline to get me home for Christmas has changed that person so much that she’s afraid of her own shadow at times. Dementia has made her for afraid or scared of any and everything that she doesn’t know and it seems to be getting worse. I’m realizing that we are definitely losing Mama Altogether, not just the ability for her to do things, and the ability for her to talk to us, to advisor us on things, but the fact is that we are losing her altogether. Although we are realizing that were losing her altogether. We are nowhere near ready for this to happen. There comes a time when life changes, changes everything that you’re doing. We are finding ourselves in this situation, where we \ are going to be by ourselves in a very short time. A lot of it has to do with the fact that so many quick changes with mom. Some of it happening to do with the fact that the boy is now 22 years old and not knowing how long he’s going to stay home. He’s got his own life to live, how much longer the estate with mommy and daddy this, we don’t know.</p>

Family Emergency
<p> </p> <p>I open this episode, with a dedication to Debra Lilly the family member how has pass away this month.</p> <p>Things that you are doing don’t matter a whole lot when it comes to family emergencies. Family emergencies, You can’t plan for they come right out of the blue and what ever you’re working on, no matter what it is or how important it is. You have to set aside in order to take care of the family emergency.</p> <p>When you’re caring for someone It’s pretty much like having another child in the house. They need someone with them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. So when things happen that you need to believe the house, you have to find someone to stay with the one that your caring for. You can’t just pick them up and travel to take care of the emergency or anything else. So we find ourselves in the same situation as we did in episode number 34. Not being able to do things you know you should.</p> <p>I know with Mama with her dementia condition she doesn’t understand what’s going on around her. She’s having trouble recognizing us and were with her all the time. I know that she does not understand what and why we need to leave to take care of this emergency.</p> <p>After having the situation that we had an episode number 34, we have been able to locate a lady from the church that is willing to come and sit with mom when we need her to with ample notification. However, this family emergency happened and there was no time to notify this lady. So I needed to stay with mom.</p> <p>With Mama’s dementia she doesn’t recognize us, sometimes, although she knew the rest of the family, with her dementia she no longer remembers who they are. She no longer knows who some of her own children are at times. So you can’t just pick her up and go anywhere. You have to have someone stay with her because she’s almost like a child.</p> <p>Spring is here, summaries just around the corner and yours things in his house and around this house that I need to get taking care of. I’m having trouble doing these things because a mamas dementia. I know more go get started on something, and Mama needs something. I know more get back to doing what I was doing get concentrating on that and Mama needs something again. It’s a day by day vicious cycle.</p> <p>Stephanie and I’ve been talking about getting this lady from the church to come in one or 2 days a week. Now, though, that summer is here, Stephanie is out of work for the summer. We may not get this lady through the summer. However, this winter when Stephanie goes back to work, We may get this lady to come stay with mom. So I can get some things done that I want and need to get done. We’re just not sure what, when, or even if will get this lady.</p> <p>As you take care of someone they get to the point where all they want is you to be the one to take care of them. And I honestly think that’s where mamas at. She wants me and only me at times. So anyone else who’s trying to take care of her, has a difficult time doing so.</p> <p>With the above being said though I honestly believe that Mama has my son and I mixed up. You see, there are times when Michael Junior can get them to do things that I’ve been trying to get them to do with a fair amount of ease. I’m not sure at those times, who she thinks I am. I’m not sure whether she thinks I’m my father, my stepfather or if she thinks I may just be someone trying to get her to do something that she doesn’t want to do.</p> <p>I’ve said all of this just to say that, Life has a way of throwing obstacles at you out of the blue. That was the case this week for the family. You see, Stephanie has lost her sister. And although they were not as close as they should of been it’s still a very sad time for the family.</p> <p>I asked myself this question. Is the family repeating itself? You see for the 1st 3 years of Stephanie and I marriage we were going to funerals every 6 months. We were going to funerals for either her family, my family or yes even friends of ours. Most of whom were at our wedding. You see, it’s only been about 6 months between the 2 funerals now. It makes me stop and think whether or not history is repeating itself.</p> <p>With having to family deaths so close together. It really makes me stop and think, mom is 84. She has dementia. It really makes me stop and appreciate the time that we’ve have. Cause you never know when you got a be out of time. Time becomes more precious with those you love the older you get.</p> <p>One thing I do know, is that death is not the end. Death is only the beginning of the afterlife. Each and every one of us will face the judgment seat of Christ, and account for our lives. I also believe that besides being a moneymaker, the funerals and the memorial services or whatever else you may have their, that’s more for your family members that you’re leaving behind. So they have some way of saying goodbye to you. I don’t believe it’s for you because you’re not there. Your in presence of God, accounting for your life.</p> <p>Finally, I’ll wrap up by just saying once again that this episode of care giving for dementia is dedicated to Debra Lilly the family member that we’ve lost, and although we were not as close as we should of been, to the rest of Debra’s family that may hear this episode. I just want to say I’m very sorry, very sorry indeed for your loss.</p> <p>I know with Mama with her dementia condition she doesn’t understand what’s going on around her. She’s having trouble recognizing us and were with her all the time. I know that she does not understand what and why we need to leave to take care of this emergency.</p> <p>After having the situation that we had an episode number 34, we have been able to locate a lady from the church that is willing to come and sit with mom when we need her to with ample notification.

Dementia Music
<p align="center"><strong>Care Giving for Dementia</strong></p> <p align="center"><strong>Episode # 48</strong></p> <p align="center"><strong>Dementia Music</strong></p> <p align="center"><strong> </strong></p> <p align="center"><strong> </strong></p> <p>In this week’s episode of caregiving for dementia, I talk a little bit about the truck, bus, van thing that I’ve been talking a little bit about. The condition of the vehicle a little bit about the costs, but mainly versus putting a shed in the backyard in which is that I think I’m leaning more toward putting the shutout, then the vehicle due to costs.</p> <p>I started to call this episode Elvis Presley and dementia, because of the reaction that we have with Mama and Elvis’s music on an HBO special on Saturday night. The reaction re-received without was totally different than any other kind of music performer that we played before.</p> <p>We have tried playing different kinds of music for Mama, most of which seem to just agitate her. One of these types of music would’ve been our music, such as Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, and Journey. We have also tried though, Ben Crosby, Dean Martin, as well as net King Cole. And the only reaction we seem to be able to get that with anything at all other than agitation was Elvis is music for some reason.</p> <p>Now my question is, is why Elvis is the same era as Ben Crosby that King Cole, Dean Martin, why did he is music have such a different reaction. I don’t know. I think I am going to try to run some kind of a small experiment with her and music. The question of it is, as well. I have the same reaction to Elvis is music on say something like an album as I did on the TV special. Did we get the reaction from the TV special because it was something that she could see or was it the music itself? Again, I don’t know.</p> <p>Was it the music itself, is it music, is it visual, or is it just noise all in general. This is something that I need to find out. I’m hoping to get mom outside in the yard a little bit when the weather breaks to find this out. If it’s noise in general that makes you react, then she should react to the birds singing out in the front yard. Will The Chipmunks the squirrels make her react the same way that she reacts to the dog? Why would she not react to other animals?</p> <p>These are all kind of questions that I need to get answers to that. I hope to have some answers to as soon as the weather breaks. I hope you stay tuned. I’ll keep you updated. So I hope you stay tuned to the episodes. It will be interesting. I’m sure.</p>

Feeling Like a bad caregiver,son
<p>In your teenage years, you don’t always see eye to eye with your parents about your friends. A lot of the time you end up in a big argument with your parents over your friends, because your parents can see things down the road that you can’t. These arguments are especially harsh, when argument is over a boyfriend, girlfriend relationship.</p> <p>             When it dawns on you that mom and dad knew what they were talking about, you are like wow, mom and dad did know what they were talking about. You realize mom and dad’s all this coming.</p> <p>             Years go by and you’re set in your lifestyle. You have your wife and kids. You even have a good career plan and your parents are getting older and a lot of the times, At this stage in life. Your parents can no longer stay by themselves. A lot of the times you don’t have the time for your parents that they need due to your job and family obligations. In this stage of the game you start looking for adult day care centers, nursing homes, and that kind of thing. These kinds of places, However, are quite expensive.</p> <p>When I think of nursing homes I think of it placed you really don’t want to be. You think most of them are dark, scrounging, dirty places. Now let me be clear. It has never been our intention to just drop mom off in a nursing home. We not even honestly considering this.</p> <p>             There comes a point in life where you lose all control of everything that you do. The last little bit of control that you have is whether or not you shower/bath, take your medication when you need to. This seems to be the last little bit of control, Mama seems to have, and at times both situations end up into being small arguments.</p> <p>             I named this episode, feeling like a bad caregiver, son because mom is 85. And when we get into small arguments about medication and showering, she gets a little hyper for lack of a better explanation. And I get the feeling like the bad guy because it takes so much about overall she wants to do is sleep afterward and I know that a lot of heart attacks happen, you 1st get up. Therefore, I start feeling like the bad caregiver, the bad, son because I get to thinking about these heart attack when the person that your taking care of 1st wakes up. The only thing I can think to do when Mama gets all shook up is just tell her I love her, give her a kiss tell her I love her just let them know that they are loved. You did as a child and now that you’re in your 60s 70s and 80s, they need to know that you still need him still love them.</p> <p> There are times where I don’t think Mama knows a whole lot. But then there are times when she knows everything that’s going on. The times that she knows what’s going on around her are the times that we need to love on her. The nursing arms are going to do that. The nursing homes on even a dope him up and stick them in a room somewhere where they're spending 95% of the time by themselves. That’s one reason why we’re not even considering a nursing home option. I plan on keeping mom with us, just as long as we possibly can hope that she understands that we love her that we care for and I hope that she never forgets that.</p> <p>I want to send a big thank you to Miranda Jankowska from the UK for the grade email this week to let me know that this podcast is not following on dead ears. She’s let me know that there are listeners out there and I dislike the thinker so very much for the nice email. Thanks for listening thanks Miranda, thanks to all.</p>

Personal Appearance
<p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Care Giving For Dementia</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Episode # 46</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Personal Appearance</strong></p> <p>When you were a child, you really didn’t care about how your parents looked. However, as you got older, you started day care about how you looked because you started noticing the girls. When I started noticing the opposite sex, I started caring about how I looked in other words I cared how my hair looked, and how my clothes looked. As I grew up, Mama always used to tell me after getting my haircut how good it looked how good I looked. With dementia, you’re not always sure whether or not the person is actually there. However, when you clean yourself up after all winter long looking like Grizzly Adams and you get a reaction from someone who has dementia, you can pretty much. Rest assured that you have not totally lost that person. I guess what I mean by that is, the boy and I cleaned up ourselves. After all winter long. I look like Grizzly Adams and the boys needed to shaving in a haircut as well. He was not quite as bad as I was, but all in all, we both needed to clean up after all winter long. In other words, we went and got our haircuts and we boast shaved. Now, for me one of the reasons why I decided to do this week is because the wife Stephanie wanted me to clean up for Easter, and like most men, I teased her for a good little while telling her I was not going to do it for Easter. But I decided to surprise her Friday night when she come home from work with a haircut and a clean shave. The boy got he is the week before. So we both got cleaned up for his mother, because she wanted us cleaned up for Easter. Now Michael got his cut the week before I did mine and with Mama and her dementia. She noticed that something was changed with him. However, when I got mine haircut and I shaved I got jibber jabber like you wouldn’t believe. You see, when I didn’t get my haircut when Mama was Mama. She always told me how good I looked how nice it was that I had got my haircut. Even with Mama’s dementia, I got a lot of jibber jabber that told me that I have not completely lost my mother to this terrible disease of dementia. We have also been able to carry on a conversation with mom for the bout 24 hours due to the fact that we forgot to give her the medication. Now it was not a complete conversation, but it was a conversation. Nevertheless, you could figure out what she was talking about, to a point. So we this leaves me with the thought that maybe the medication is causing her to lose the ability to carry on these conversations. However, without these medications she becomes a handful so were caught between a rock and a hard place with the medications. We talk a little bit about dreams in this episode. You see, Mama seems to be waking up at times screaming. Absolutely terrified for some reason is this caused by dementia, the medication, or something else where unsure.</p>

The Dementia Wall
<p>The dementia wall is a wall that was built by the person who has dementia to help make that person feel safe. Much like the border wall will make the country safer. Dementia isolates the one who has it, so it’s almost like you’re reaching through, over, under, or around what I’m calling a dementia wall when you’re dealing with someone who has dementia. From time to time, it’s hard to get the one who has dementia to cooperate with you. When it’s time for their medication at times, they don’t want to take it. A lot of the times, it’s a pain to do the slightest thing with that person. And for some reason a lot of the times, it’s hard to get them started with a bath. This thing that I’m calling the dementia wall takes away the person’s personality. It’s almost like their a totally different person. Although at times, the personality of the person returns, for short time. When the person personality returns you can actually have a small conversation with that person.</p>

Dementia No Talk
<p>This week’s episode of care giving for dementia is really not about dementia. However, I call it Dementia No Talk because of a couple different reasons. The 1st reason is because the more or the longer this dementia goes, the less talk, we get out of mom. The more jibber her speech becomes. But also because we’ve had a another school shooting here last week and now 17 people no longer have a voice to talk with. This episode is a lot to do with the shooting in schools my opinion on the shooting in schools how to solve it, how not to solve it. So I hope you enjoy this episode of care giving for dementia although it does not have a lot to do with dementia.</p>

Dementia Who Are You
<p>Dementia Who Are You? Episode # 42 In this week’s episode of care giving for dementia. I asked the question? Dementia who are you? It’s becoming more and more frequent that Mama asked the question who we are, whenever were talking to her. I also mention in this episode, when we were kids. Mama always used to call the role, and then she would say you know who I’m talking to, you know who I’m talking about. I also mention the fact that Mama seems to be a little bit more scared. And that’s the reason why she’s acting out so often. I also asked the question what’s going to happen to me or Stephanie when we get to be mom’s age. I question whether or not Michael will be there for us if we him. I also use a quote from Cliff Ravenscraft. I don’t need easy I just need worth it. You can find Cliff’s podcast, at https://www.cliffravenscraft.com. I asked you to please go to either www.babymountainradio.com or www.caregivingfordementia.com and leave me a comment.

Dementia Boredom
<p>This week’s episode is about being bored even though you’re busy taking care of the one with mental disease. You do get bored even though there are things to do. You don’t always feel like doing them because you’re mentally tired, mentally stressed out, from taking care of the one that your taking care of. The times that you have to yourself is so few and far in between that you just don’t want to do anything. You get tired of doing the same things you always do to keep yourself out of boredom at times. When you’re not sleeping because you either can’t or don’t feel like sleeping your not always able to do a whole lot because the things that you do may or may not cause noise. So you get bored because the things that you normally do. You’re tired of doing, or they make too much noise to do at certain times of the day. You may also get bored because everybody in the house is sleeping at certain times. You don’t always feel like sleeping when everybody else in the house is. You don’t play with the dog because everybody else is sleeping. Also in this episode, I mentioned making some trinkets for the podcast. I also mention possible listener donations through Patreon.</p>

Dementia Violence
<p>  I named this episode dementia violence because I wanted to put my feelings out about the violence that you may or may not experience with your caregiving of someone with a mental disease.<br />   I've heard a couple other caregiving podcasts and one of those podcast was on dementia violence and locking up knives in getting rid of guns and taking things to the extreme.<br />   So I thought I would put my opinion out there because what books smarts people tell you is not always what happens in the field. You see my podcast doesn't have a lot of book smarts this podcast has field smarts, which is to entirely different things.<br />   Hope you enjoy the episode dementia violence episode number 38.</p>

Interruptions
<p>Caregiving for Dementia Episode 34 Interruptions This week on caregiving: I want to talk to you a little bit about things that don’t get done. When, you take care of someone no matter what the reason. There’s, always things that need to be done that don’t always get done. Like housework! Whether that, be the dishes , the beds made, laundry, or any other need to do housework. Now, when mom was in good health, she would clean the house and work. Mama worked up until oh, I guess, 1997 and even when Mama worked, and was steel able keep the house clean. Now it wasn’t spotless, but it was clean. Now that Mama is not as well, Stephanie is working all day long. I mean she doesn’t come home until evening because of transportation. Michael is working 8 to 10 hours a day. So that only leaves mom and I hear in the house, and the dog. So there are things, that yes need to be done, but if I try starting to do something, whether that be the dishes, laundry or sweeping the floor or whatever. 9 times out of 10 Mama needs something, and most of the time it is at the worst time. It doesn’t always have to be housework. Many times, I’m on the computer and mom need something. I’m in a shower and mom need something. Or any other thing that we’re doing, we need to stop and take care of her, and because of that, there’s a lot of things that get put off until they just can’t be put off anymore. There are things that I’d like to do that I’m not doing because it would take a lot of time to configure and I’d get deep in thought and Mama would yell because she needed something. Sometimes, that something, is she just wants to know that somebody else’s in the house with her, that happening more and more. A lot of the time, she’ll wake up from a nap and she gets really scared because she thinks there’s nobody else in the house. No matter how many times you tell her that she’s never in the house alone, it doesn’t seem to sink in. When you’re the only one that is taking care of somebody else, whether that your children or your elderly parents and you know they’re scared, you do everything you can for them with them at any time. It also affects you a little bit also because, for a while you’re trying to figure out why their so scared. A lot of times they can’t tell you, what, why there’s a scared. Singer, left with the feeling of that was weird. And for a while, you are worried about what it is that there is a scared of. Mamas, is to the point now, where she’s scared of her own shadow at times. Mama is seeing things that scare her. A lot of the times, the things that she sees are caused by her hallucinations due to dementia. I’ve thought a lot about maybe hiring someone to do some of the things that I’ve been putting off. There are some things that need to be fixed, that Yeah, I could fix, but I get to fixing and Mama would needs something. I thought about hiring somebody just to help with mom. Which we did for a while, but that got expensive. I’m not sure even if I was to hire someone to help take care of mom, I’m not sure Mama would let them. I know there’s times when Michael and Stephanie, both take care mom and evening, and Mama wants me. Michael and I had discussion last night. Michael was telling me that when he takes care of his grandma. A lot of the times when she wants something, that something is me. I tried to telling Michael that I can’t be there every time Mama wants me. I’ve got a have a little bit of time every day for myself. The more time that goes by the worst Mama gets the more Mama wants me. I tried to tell Michael that she wants me because I’m the one that’s here 5 days a week, 12 hours a day. I tried to telling that he needs to work with his grandmother in times like that. I also told him, though I knew it wouldn’t be easy because Mama is so used to having me with her that it’s really hard for her to trust someone else. Because they’re not with mom is much as I am. I think that mom has trash issues with them when they take care of her. I’m trying to do my best, to work them into the routine in the evening and weekends. So that mom builds that trust with Stephanie and Michael so that I don’t have to be there as much. I really hope that mom will build that trust with Michael and Stephanie so that I can get a little bit of a break every day without happening to stay up past midnight just to have a little bit of time to myself. I don’t mean for this to sound like I’m complaining I’m not. But these are the things that happen when you take care of someone no matter who it is. One of the reasons why are called this episode interruptions. It’s because while I was doing this podcast I have gotten interrupted by the telephone, Mama need go to the bathroom, as well as needing something to eat for lunch. So to wrap all this up. This is just what happens as you take care of your elderly parents or whoever it may be, that your taking care of. Don’t forget whatever you do, don’t forget yourself you need to take care of yourself as well. Cause if you don’t nobody will. So ask yourself this question. If you don’t take care yourself who’s going to take care of the one that your taking care of? Stay tuned for next week’s episode as we discuss what were doing and what where not doing for the holidays due to the dementia. Also a couple months from now I will be celebrating one year of podcasting. I’d like to have a little bit your input as to how we do that. If you’ll go to www.babymountainradio.com and leave us a comment as to how we should celebrate our one year in podcasting. I would appreciate it so very much.

Proudly Terrorized Part # 3
<p style="text-align: center;">           <strong>Proudly Terrorized Part # 3</strong></p> <p>Michael Junior is Terrorizing Us: One of the reasons why I named this series of 3 episodes Proudly Terrorized, is because about 6 months ago, Michael come to his mother and I and told us that there was some kind of a concert going on at the end of October, out in Las Vegas, that he wanted to go to . Now, for normal parents that would probably be a big deal to let their kid go from one end of the country to the other, but for us, we were okay with it, because back in 2011 we got a letter from the people to people student ambassador programs. Now how we got this letter, we don’t know, how ,who what, where ,when yada yada yada. We have no idea, but make a long story short, Michael was invited to go overseas to France, England, and Rome. I believe he was about 14 at the time , 13, 14, in that range, so we decided to go ahead and let him go. We did all kind of checks and all kinds of protections and everything that we could do and all that,but the problem was with that trip itself. You see his mother and I had just seen the movie Taken. Now if you haven’t seen any of the movies Taken. These movies are about people that go overseas and get kidnapped and that kind of thing, the wrong kind of movie to go see at the movies the evening or 2 before your child goes overseas. So that was a little bitt of time that was terrorizing for his mother and I being the daddy that I am. But we had mom at this time that we could talk to. She was a good comfort to both of us. In fact, she even Helped him go, and we had all kinds of things in place to where we knew where he was at certain times of the day, Which made us feel a little better about letting go, not just across the country, but overseas. Remember now, the boy is only 13, 14 years old. He’s not a child, he’s not a baby, but yet he’s not an adult, either, so he comes back, everything’s fine and dandy. He graduates from high school, which is another terrorizing moment in life because it makes you realize that your child is no longer a child that needs his mommy and daddy all the time, now he’s not fully grown, but old enough to step out on his own, just a bit. All this is leading up to the fact that Michael Junior is no longer a child. He’s a now young adult, yet he still needs mommy and daddy at times, but he’s no longer depending on us for every move he makes. Now this week in the country, We’ve had this mass shooting out in Las Vegas. There’s some kind of a concert at the end of the month that Michael wants to go to in his head made plans to go to for about 3 months at least in the same location. This is very terrorizing for his mother and I number 1 because these are only child number 2 because of the shooting. That was just out there. I mean, this guy killed 59 people and injured 500 people over 500 people, I believe. So I have tried my best to talk Michael out of going without coming plane out telling him that he can’t go, I told him he shouldn’t go, but I have not asking not to go and I won’t asking not to go. He’s he’s 21 he’s got to make his own life decisions whether or not they may or may not put them in arms way. I I’m really proud of in because he does have a heck of a head on the shoulders for being 21. Maybe I’m just being the over protective parent that needs to keep quiet and and letting do what he wants to do. I mean eventually he got a turn things like this over to God and let God take care of a. After all, he is 21, you can’t make every decision for him. And I think one of the frightening things about this one is is that mom is not here mentally to talk to about it and to give us that mental support that she give us when he went overseas. She can’t carry on a conversation, let alone give us any kind of advice about letting go across the country, like she did when he went overseas. Naturally still in the country. He sees closer than what he was when he was 13, 14, but he’s older tell and we just need to be…… There if and when he needs us. I want my mommy to talk to about to give me that comfort that she give us when he went overseas, but unfortunately dementia has got are locked in this little world over own. I know she’s in there somewhere, because we get glimpses of her, but she’s not there 24 / 7, 365, the way she was when he went overseas. These are the kind times that I really miss mom. I guess that due to dementia, this is how I’m going to go through the rest of my life. Not being able to talk to her in situations like this to give me that comfort to give me that backbone that I need to let him grow up in the way that I know he will. I mean Stephanie and I’ve done a great job. I think with raising Michael with mom’s help. He’s turned out to be a great young man. When he was little, I thought maybe he’d be the world’s next Elvis Presley. But now that he’s 21 has no interest in preforming music, that wish in mind as changed. Although my hopes of him, become an Elvis have changed. I do believe that no matter what he does in life with the attitude that he’s got today he will do something great in this world. I have had some great conversations with him, on politics, and religion, and now then, with the shooting in Las Vegas and he’s left me with the impression that he’s got a good head on his shoulders and I need to trust in his decisions that affect his life. So with all that said, the only thing I can say to him, and about him, is that daddy is very, very proud of him. I’m also terrorizing myself by doing this podcast. I have 27 episodes out. This is number 28 and one of the things that is terrorizing is the fact that you put yourself out for all to see for all to hear what and how you react to things. I started this to keep track of mom and her dementia. The process of dementia and for a while I was calling the show the dementia episode this episode that one of the things that you learn when you do podcasting. If is to talk to other pod casters who had been doing it longer and take their advice and what they tell you and all this and either apply it or not, and what the podcast that I listen to. I have ran on to what’s called The Podcasters Roundtable.( @ Www.Podcastersroundtable.com ) with Ray Ortega, Dave Jackson from WWW.school podcasting.com and Daniel J Lewis from www. the audacity to podcast.com. I can’t get enough of this podcast I am learning so much from this podcast. That’s amazing. I not only just have one pod casters that I listen to, but now with the podcast Roundtable. There are 3 of the meta-time , plus a new one and can listen to the 3 that have done this for years and the new one that they bring on you learn so much about podcasting. The equipment what to do, how to do how to monetize how to make money, how not to make money where to host your feet what where not to so I mean that they’re going through everything and these 3 podcast is a been podcasting for years. Can you imagine if you were singer were in a rock band just starting out, sitting down in a room with Elvis Presley, Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and then giving you advice on how to sing, how to perform. I couldn’t. Well, okay, I think that’s probably about enough of being terrorizing. So if you are looking for other podcasts to listen to the 3 that I’ve mentioned in this podcast are great podcasts. I have learned a lot just listen to the 3 of them on the pod casters Roundtable. If you get a chance check them out. I think you enjoy your podcast. And speaking of enjoying podcast. If you enjoy this podcast, please leave me a comment, an email, on www.baby mountain radio.com</p>

<p align="center"><strong>Dementia</strong></p> <p align="center">Episode # 17</p> <p> </p> <p>Welcome to this week's episode of dementia, this is episode 17. This week Michael's under the weather I'm Stephanie his wife. Michael and I both are blowing out of our minds due to our stats of this program, we just cannot believe how many of you folks are listening. We would like to thank you so very much for all of the listening.</p> <p>This week's episode is going to be quite different due to Michael's health. But we wanted to let you know a few select things.</p> <p>Mama is doing quite fine all in all. We had another day of work done on the house, where we had to leave the house for about 8 hours and she did really good. The next day, however, she made up for having to get up so early and staying up all day that she slept all day until dinner, and she got up for dinner and right back out to bed she went. She must've been extremely tired is all we configure.</p> <p>Our boy Michael Junior is back home from his camping trip to the modern day Woodstock. He seemed to enjoy his trip very much, but was also glad to get home into his own bed and was really glad to take a shower.</p> <p>I unfortunately still have not been able to figure out all of the IPad's functions. I'm still working on trying to figure all of that out for this podcast, but once I get it there will put an episode out from the iPad and we'll see which one is better sounding for the podcast.</p> <p>One other thing that Michael wanted me to let you know is that, the DC area is having a Pod Fest in November 2017. He's looking forward to it. It will be his 1st ever pod camp. Hope to see you all there. We'll keep you posted as the information becomes available to us.</p> <p>Sorry if this episode sound like it was read. But It was, because I'm not used to speaking in the dementia podcast. Anyway, we both hope to see you next week for a much better episode of this thing. We were living with called dementia.</p> <p>One last thing Michael wanted me to ask if any of you all could go to iTunes and leave this podcast, a review apparently they seem to help. Thanks again for all your listening and thanks in advance for the review in iTunes.</p> <p>Until next week  this is Stephanie behind the mic this week ,for Michael, for the podcast on dementia have a great week, Enjoy life, We'll see you next week.</p>
