Yesterday My Mom was in one of mean moods in the morning, doesn't talk to anyone mid day and in the every around 3pm she starts drinking her wine.  She is about out so  I'm curious if she is going to ask me to go some.  She can't drive.  I'm a recovering alcoholic and it's been very hard for me since the wine is at my disposal.  Plus, it was my drink of choice.  I noticed that mom's small glass of wine has turned into a large mason jar.  Her box wine isn't lasting very long.  She says there's no way she drank all that. I bought her two boxes last Tuesday.  She drinks from 3pm until about 7 or 8pm  then goes to bed.  She has a lot of meds she takes at night and of course she's not suppose to mix the two. She tells me she will walk up around 10pm and take her medicines.  But I'm not sure she is.  She admitted she didn't the night before last.  I know she hates taking all these pills so i wouldn't put it past her to not take them and tell she has.  And, I have fears that one of these days mixing the two will kill her.  I asked her are you trying to push the bucket mom?  She said, "I don't care.  If it happens it happens."  I don't know if its the alcoholic in her or her Alzheimer's.   I feel like my hands are tied and there's nothing I can do.
