Clarify please: Is your mother 40 yrs old? What could be stressing her so.? I think you're hoping it's just stress. But, if she has unexplained weight loss, she first needs a medical exam. If that proves negative, perhaps dr can refer her to psychologist for help with her insomnia, anxiety, and mood swings. Thanks for caring for your mother.
