Nurse Patty from the Halifax Hospital Psychiatric Unit called me. She said mom was waiting by the phone, but very restless and anxious today. She switched me to the line for the phone next to mom.

Mom answered the phone. We talked for about ten minutes.

Mom was very sad. She said she thinks that I’m lying to her, and that she can no longer trust me. She’s afraid I’m going to leave her there forever, she said. She repeated several times that she doesn’t believe me any more.

It was a very, very rough call. She’s just paranoid, scared, and sad.
