What mum needs not what people want!

Once again no one listens to me and the doctors orders. It was brought up that mum shouldn't leave bupa for parties etc anymore because of health and safety. So we were waiting for doctor to seek what he thought and get a letter with details of  what he thinks mum is capable of doing. I saw her doctor this week and he agreed with me to certain points.

I'm having trouble with people understanding what mum needs are. Mum has changed so much that she is getting weaker, and gets tired really easy, she is more prone to hurting herself and has a harder time swallowing and falling when she is tired, mum can't control her body functions when consuming alcohol. Not to mention how hard it is to get mum into a car and have her seat belt in safe position, as it moves continuously as mum moves.

This is why it's not safe for mum to leave her safety net of home. There is no reason in the world why they can't go out to see her where she is safe and comfortable. Instead of her being dragged out where too many things could go wrong. Mum should only leave to see her doctors or specialist.
