I have no advice but wanted to say that your Mom is lucky (even if she doesn't realize it) to have family around that cares. I hope you are able to get her on board with the desperately needed changes that need to occur. I think it will be difficult and I agree with trying to get a therapist that specializes in hoarding/organizing involved.
Okay all you resourceful nurses out there, I have firsthand knowledge that many of you are very clever. I need your help!
My 18 yo teenager daughter has been diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis. It is similar to Rheumatoid Arthritis in the terrible joint damage it can cause without prevention.
There is a big city wide walk scheduled for April and she wants to form a team to walk and raise money/awareness. She needs a catchy team name.
Some examples of teams already formed are: Scaleysaurus and The Flakey Bunch.
Thanks in advance :)

This sounds just like our relationship. I am the billpayer. Mainly because he isn't tech savvy at all. He never gets on the computer. I pay bills online.
He does laundry- a lot (thank goodness) but used to get terribly embarrassed if I mentioned it in public. I do not think it would bother him nowadays. He likes to BBQ outside so I usually handle the side dishes.
One thing we have done since we met in 1989: He takes out the garbage/recyclables (to the garage and the road on pick up days) and I clean the bathroom(s). I take this seriously and have been known to carefully stack things one on top of the other until the mountainous pile threatens to topple over. lol

Off topic, sorry. My childhood church (where my Mom still attends) is Evangelical Lutheran. They still do not have (allow) women to participate in the services, ie: read scripture, assit w/ communion. Heck, don't believe I recall any female ushers...
