I just posted to someone who asked about hoarders giving their things away? I said, "no". I based my answer on my mother who became a hoarder over time and would not let go of anything. However, in the last week she has been packing boxs of old clothes, shoes', blanks and sheets, books, and odds & ends. When I asked her what she was doing she said these are things she wants to give away. So, my BF & I gave them away. She was happy about it.
Then she gave me her Will, the Quick Deed to her house which my name is on the Quick Deed as the second name. She also gave me the title to her truck which my name is not on, and the title to our travel trailer which both our names are on.
My mother was always some what controlling but became more controlling after my dad passed away, but now she is giving me these things, however, not the POA'S which my name is on.
She shared her cheesecake recipe with me, which she would never give me or anybody for that matter. She also told me were the family photo album was & where the info about my dad's family was.
She has early stage of dementia and a bad heart. She sees her cardiologist every three months but won't tell me anything or let me go with her. She has symptoms of CHF & is taking nitro twice a day. Her nitro prescription says to take once in the morning and once before bed.
This behavior is not like her. Is it dementia or perhaps she knows her time is limited due to her heart?
I am so confused!
Sorry so long.
