I have had enough of all the strange behaviors my mother is exhibiting since her dementia diagnosis. This is a new one lately that absolutely drives me crazy. Tell me if you think this is as much as I feel it is. We have 2 bathrooms in our home. Recently the toilet in her (my mom's) room broke--got plugged up. She does use and inordinate amount of toilet paper and she puts things down there like food scraps. Anyway, the second bathroom off my room is working and available. Soooooo.....in the middle of the night when she has to go #1 or #2, she does so in this bucket and then brings it to my toilet in the morning and dumps it. I have told her and told her and leave the light on in the second bathroom so she can use it if needed. I have even thrown the disgusting blue bucket away so she won't (she has fished it out of the trash). To me this is disgusting and unnecessary. Am I over-reacting or is this just another step in her failing mind?
