My mother is constantly grandstanding for attention. She will be 87 this September 11th. Example of her self absorption: Why did that have to happen on MY birthday?!
Ok, now you’ve got the picture. She is in good health although she wears two hearing aids and has limited bouts with vertigo. We are trying to find a doctor who can listen to her million imagined aliments and give her a strong talking to. We are exhausted. Big surprise. She just spent three days in the hospital because she told the doctor she was coughing up blood. Reality…she vomited some prunes she had for breakfast. After a battery of tests the doctor said nothing was wrong, the insurance company wouldn’t pay for her to stay any longer so he was discharging her. We need someone to suggest a geriatric psychiatrist but this MD she is seeing now says she is one hundred percent sane.
Apparently, you can test for coo-koo but not manipulation.
