My 84 yr. old mother has lived me me for 5 years, since my Dad passed away. Over the last few years, I've noticed her forgetting a lot of little things, but lately she seems to make up horrible things that are happening to her and "assumes" it's someone in our household doing this. It's me, my husband and my 11 year old son, and the accusations and stories are unreal and so stressful. My husband is a saint and tries to console me, but sometimes she thinks we are hiding her medication or swapping out her pills, but she can never show me the proof of what she found. Just yesterday she said she found a tissue in her bathroom filled with semen. I tried to assure her that it was most likely from my son who had been home sick with the flu and that he either went up to her apartment and dropped it or the dog carried it up, but all she said was "I knew you would never believe me" and then it ended up in a full blown argument in which she said she wanted to leave and knew I just want her dead. She didn't even have the tissue. She said it was in the garbage and she already took it out. I don't know where to turn, I've been so good to her and make sure she has everything she needs, but she still feels she is independent and nothing is wrong. This is tearing me up and I just want her to get the help she needs, but I don't know what to do.
