It is a tough time around the house now. People who know me probably know that my mother is one of the mean ones on the group. Her meanness has been almost completely replaced by confusion now. She can't figure out if she is hot or cold. She has forgotten how to give herself insulin shots. She is talking about her childhood almost exclusively, instead of anything that is going on around her. She is forgetting that she had her insulin and thinks she should take more.
We have a lot of workman that will be around the house soon. I'm sure that all my business dealings with them have not made her any calmer. I've tried to cut her out of most of the dealings, but it makes her anxious not to be in control. She worries a lot and gets stuck in loops.
I am adding a trip to the doctor this week to test for a UTI. There are no symptoms of one, but I wouldn't want to let it go if that is what is causing so much confusion. I feel so bad for her, because she is trying so hard to keep it together. Her brain is just not cooperating.
Not question here. I just needed to talk about what is going on with her. I've wondered if it is UTI, if she had TIAs, or if a bit of Alz had joined her other dementia. It is such a guessing game at times when it comes to dementia.
