My mother, (with gen. age decline) starts raising her voice and flailing her arms, sometimes even smacking the counter or desk or whatever is handy at the time. Occassionally stomping her feet. She is covering up her memory loss (aka lying) and when caught in this she then dives head first into drama.... throwing a temper tantrum. It happens usually when no one else is around. My son and I are the only ones that get to see this. If we walk away, she follows and usually makes a personal insult, trying to get a response. We usually ask her if this is what she really wants to do. Or that it is not an appropriate place or time. It is starting to ruin the relationship between her and my son (her grandson). I am usually able to let it roll off my back, but sometimes even I have a hard time with it. This is a fairly new development in our journey. Please, please, please any help would be appreciated!
