I am an only child and I moved my mom up to be closer to us last year. She was 8 hours away. She says she hates the people in her new place and that they are all rude and snobby. She has lived there 14 months. When I'm with her at her place, I walk with her and see others look at her to say "hi" and she just scowls . I wouldn't ask her to sit by me either. This has torn me apart as I want her to find a friend. I partially want this so she will stop depending on my for all her happiness. But I cannot do it for her and I am afraid that her cognitive decline will not allow her to see how to make friends anymore. She is becoming more and more egocentric. It is very difficult to be with her as she is so hyper focused on winning the games, being first in line everywhere, answering all the questions (even if not directed at her). She can be exhausting. I tried to coach her on how to celebrate (graciously) if she wins bingo or other games at her place. She remembers for one round and then she's back to her former self. I guess what I'm asking is ..... does this seem normal? How can I talk to her about her behavior? She has always sort of been this way but it is over the top. I feel sorry for her and I get so frustrated with her all at the same time. I know everyone is dealing with situations like this. I appreciate the ability to vent.
