Mommy?: Jagged Pieces Along the Road to Dementia by Dr. Brenda Triplett

Age gracefully "Miss Hilda" did not.
She fought like hell: dug in her heels, kicked, stomped, and cussed all the way to dementia. As her caregiver and advocate, the author became Mommy all at once to a stubborn toddler, sexually precocious teenager, and immature adult as her ailing mother vacillated between developmental stages and psychological states of mind. Mommy? offers an honest, raw glimpse into the life of a very human caregiver desperately trying to advocate for her mother while sustaining the quality of her own life. Passionately written, the memoir speaks to the deepest, most intimate battles of caregivers on the front line. Delivered with empathy, humor, and shocking candor, readers will walk away smarter, more confident, and steeped in inspiration.
The greatest gift will be a resounding affirmation of their own sanity!
