Upset with myself because I lost it with my mom tonight. She's already forgotten all about it, though. I caught her picking all the chocolate chips out of the mint chocolate chip ice cream with a fork. Other issues are that she is always "tetris-ing" the garbage in the garbage can. She cuts pills (worn fabric) off of clothes and they end up full of holes. All of her help is not helpful. She breaks or purposefully ruins (fixes?) a lot of my things. Just a few examples are breaking my coffee cup and hiding it in the bottom of the garbage can, flattening (ripping up the inside of) the microfiber sponge I use to wash dishes. It makes me nuts that she messes with the food, many items bought specifically for other family members, because she doesn't wash her hands. Never has. She's always had a selfish personality, everything's always about her, plus the OCD quirks, but amplified with the dementia component. Sometimes she says she's sorry, that she knew I wouldn't like it. It's as if she's a defiant child. Most of this of course is the disease, but seems the actions are directed at me specifically. On the positive side, she's no longer anxious/worried, unhappy, naggy, or obsessed with insignificant issues she never let go of in the past. Just ranting on this first post of mine. I'm usually patient and keep a sense of humor about it all. Anyone with similar OCD -type issues?
