I don't want to give details, I just get reamed for expressing annoyance overmuch. Suffice it to say, the last 3 days I have sat with mom for over 15 minutes and that is when the 'insanity' starts. Says things that ultimately don't make sense, doesn't understand answers, etc. Gets to the point I just leave because I can't take it anymore, she won't drop it, and I will not hang around trying to 'fix' it. I think things go better if I stay less than 15, 10 minutes. Is it possible to stay too long? I know her brain is not working too well anymore, Some ways she is still sharp, but other areas she is as dense as the proverbial log. I've noticed that when I answer she seems to have a blank expression, and nothing I say seems to register as she will simply go on and ignore what I've said, even when it answers the question, and repeats it. I'm thinking of testing the hypothesis out and see if longer/short periods make a difference in how she acts. Anyone out there similar experiences?
