Does anyone else have this problem with their parent? My mother is almost 100, mobile, no meds and living in independent living. (although she should be in assisted living but won't go.) She is obsessed with her bowels. We are always taking away milk of magnesia (she is not supposed to have it, but gets it somehow) She cuts up soap bars and shoves them you know where. We have given her glycerine suppositories as a last resort, but she still cuts up soap, then lies about it. She barely eats enough to stay alive so naturally doesn't go much and we can't get anywhere with the eating, or bowel issue. She won't listen to the doctor either. No matter what we say she is constantly finding ways to force it, giving herself diarrhea one day, claiming constipation for 4 days (the next day). She has progressing dementia, and is still able to get up, dress herself, make coffee, etc, but this obsession with certain topics (like the bowels, her cataract, etc) is frustrating us. Does anyone else have a parent so obsessed?
