My mother is 81. She has senile dementia and paranoia. She is very funny about food. She doesn’t want to throw anything away. I found a jar of fermented okra in the fridge and showed it to her and told her I was going to get rid of it. She looked like she had a demon in her eyes and told me to leave her food alone. I put it back. I can tell she’s not eating it but why keep it? And other things to that need thrown out. Stale crackers and other jars I’m afraid to open.
