My mother has started hiding her things around the house. I watched my grandmother do the same thing to my mom when she was a caregiver for her and now she's doing the very same behavior that drove her nutty! It's stuff that I would think no one would have an interest in (it's not money or rare coins or anything valuable!) it's things like her mascara or her face cream. She even hides her doggie bones from me. Sometimes she hides her pens, or paper towels, or liters of soda. At times she can be such a giver...she gave me an old ring of my grandmother's the other day. I don't understand it! Why does this paranoid behavior start?? My grandmother did the same behavior, now my mom.... will this happen to me too when I am elderly???
