My Dad's wife has been embellishing facts about her life for decades. When it escalated we didn't realize she had narcissism or dementia until the memory loss became more apparent. We then thought she had a version of the dementia for decades but eventually ruled that out to a diagnosis of Narcissistic Personality Disorder and now Frontaltemporal Dementia. We could not tell the difference between her grossly inflated stories of her education, jobs, money, travel and control of my Dad due to her narcissism versus confabulation due to memory loss. It has been a roller coaster ride and difficult for everyone who knows her because she is completely self absorbed, controlling and a little paranoid and has been for decades, but now with memory loss. Even now, she won't let my Dad talk to me without standing nearby or interrogating him after a phone call with me. Has anyone else had to deal with a person with dementia and a personality disorder, which doesn't go away when they get dementia apparently?
