    Physically, And Mentally

    My Mom has cancer, but she also has dementia (possibly Alzheimer's). We aren't sure which will get her first. The Mom I knew no longer exists, however, regardless of  which illness she succumbs to.

    There is nothing wrong with being a strict mom. Nothing wrong with holding folks accountable for their actions, either, and if that means a blazing butt then so be it.
