my mom was in the hospital for congestive heart failure this summer. SHe has been struggling to get some sense of normal back. SHe is having trouble with racing heart, medication sensitivity, blood pressue maintanence depending on body position.
SHe is having trouble holding foods and liquids. She is becomming somewhat dispondent. SHe reports seeing and hearing things and seeing dead relatives. She is aware that the familiy members are no longer living but is sure she is spending time with them.
Her most recent symptoms include having metalic taste in mouth and mucus "looks like toilet paper" in her bowl movements.
SHe is very upset by the whole process. Her family dr attitue is changing from compassionate to telling her to grow up its in her head.

We appreciate any suggestion as to how to proceed.
Thanks
