I have an appointment for a much anticipated psychological evaluation for my 89-year-old mother with possible dementia tomorrow. She is so angry with me still about taking away the car that she will not even talk to me. I need to petition for guardianship but have to get this evaluation first. It's not going to be easy because she is a retired psych nurse and thinks there's nothing wrong with her memory and will not go to the doctor. She is verbally combative so I may have to make up a large "white lie". I'm having trouble with that but for her safety (she is walking to grocery store for tobacco) and health well being, she has got to go so we can move forward.
