I tried asking her... why did she hear me in the kitchen cooking, preparing her a meal but didn't say anything beforehand. No answer to that. She just keeps saying she doesn't want it.
I then asked her, if she thinks it's rotten, why did she allow me to eat it without saying anything.
She had diarrhea this morning and she thinks it's because of the food. She says she doesn't want the food because it came from the store. I asked her how else am I supposed to get food.
She doesn't have dementia. Or at least I don't think she does. She's 74 years old and bedridden. Sometimes I think she has cognitive decline because of being bedridden. I don't know.
What should I do? She normally eats every day.
I also told her that I don't mind cleaning up her bowel movement, so there shouldn't be an issue.
If she doesn't eat one time, it shouldn't hurt her, but I wish I just had an answer on what to say to her to get her to eat. And also, what should I do for myself because she's basically in bed "humming" as she calls it.. and her humming drives me insane. I also do not like chaos in the house because it gives me anxiety. I'm always in fix it mode.
What should I do?
