    Going through this exact thing with my mom who has dementia. It sucks. But I'm glad to be there for her as she was for me. Keep the faith.

    I can totally relate. I'm not taking care of my mother currently but I have in the past and I've been supporting her financially for 3yrs now.

    You just wrote something I say all the time, until having my daughter I never felt like a real adult. I thought I was the only adult feeling that way!

    Mary Ann, dementia must be so hard to deal with. It's hard enough dealing with a sick parent, but with the additional mental instability, that must be really painful.

    Amanda, wow, financial and emotional support are still taking care of your mom. And yes, I thought I would never feel like a *real* adult. It's weird when it finally happens, right?
