I'm 23 taking care of my 51 yr old mother. We're trying to figure out what's wrong with her. It has to be something in the frontal lobe because of how much her personality has changed. We had dementia ruled out, but I think he misdiagnosed her and we are searching for a second opinion. She has an IQ of 71 and her mental and emotional maturity varies between a 4 year old and a 13 year old. I can't go anywhere without her wanting me to buy something for her. She also has no judgement of what is socially acceptable. The other say we had a couple walk by us who were speaking spanish and she loudly asked me if they just spoke spanish around us because they know we can't understand it.
And another day when we were doing laundry at a coin op and she asked me if I would have sex with her.
Now, she's also not respecting my rules or personal space. I told her my room is off limits, but while I was away for a weekend on business she went in there and moved things. I have an old baby robot doll she's obsessed with and wants to have to sleep with, but it's just too creepy for me to let her have it. I have to lock my bedroom door in my own house. For now, she can take care of herself when I have to go away for a day or two. I check up on her every two hours and the place is still in one piece when I get back.
She's trying to get disability right now, but it's going to court and won't be resolved until august or later. I've been looking at homes that would take her and they range anywhere from 2k-7.5k a month. I don't know if I can make it until august, but I've only just started my career and I barely make 2k a month. What avenues can I look into? I have no idea where to start and I want to cry because I have no idea what to do.
