    Hi,

    My Mom is 58 she has always worked, and had a very active social lifestyle. Two years ago she suffered her first stroke and has been living in her own personal hell since. Every six months she will see the neurologist he finds more leasions on her brain, and as of recent her spine. My mother is in constant pain so the Doctor prescribed her Oxycodone, Lyrica, and Ambien at first we thought it was starting to help but then her personality started to change she wants to die, she is VERY paranoid, her face is very limp on one side and we can't hold a conversation without her thinking the devil is trying to get her. Everytime we take her to the ER because we think she may have had another stroke they want to admit her to the pysch ward because of her behavior. We don't know what else to do!! Anyone going through the same thing?
