Speaking of mixed up memories h*ll bent and whiskey bound.
3rd time in 18 months mom flipped the h*ll bent switch, ran down the road, screaming and yelling I was trying to kill her. Police station is 3 blocks down the road, 3rd time they picked her up before I could get her...3rd time she told them I'm beating her. Got questioned (again)..... told them (again) she's got AD and just flips at times, especially if I'm not entertaining her. Tried to calm her down, put her pj's on but she kept the pretend screaming up.... tossed the covers on her fully clothed went and hid in my room and cried all night long. Oh...made sure the baby locks were securely on every single door knob in this house.
So... the only person I ever known to lay a hand on my mother was my late father...she doesn't remember him but apparently somewhere in that twisted mind of hers, she remembers getting hit.
Sigh. and another.... sigh
