Hello.

The best thing you can do is have your mother examined by her doctor. Explain all the symptoms you are observing and let the doctor diagnose the cause.

I ditto what Dave says. Always rule out physical causes before moving ahead. The can be lots of reasons for her behavior.

Hope you get some answers,
Judy

I thank the people that replied
to my post.I have reconnected with a support group.The hardest part for me is the fact my father had this disease and he was confused.But my mother is mean and I know she knows something is happening to her as well.I think also since I am a female it's worse to see someone who cared for you and now the roles have turned.But with the help of my Father above and this group and the one I have reconnected with I know it will be ok.Not easy but ok.

I'm glad you're getting the help of a support group. It can make you feel less alone as you go through this awful journey.

Alzheimer's very often does change people's personalities, and I think that's the hardest part of the whole disease. It can steal away the person you've always known and loved, and leave a completely different one in his/her place.

I hope you'll continue to let us know how you and your mom are doing.

Best wishes-
Carol
