Every so often my Mum has what we call 'blips' where she gets very distressed and thinks that me (and sometimes my Dad who died 17 years ago) have gone missing. Last night she had one of these episodes and rang me at 11pm asking where I was. When I explained that I was at home she said 'No you aren't, that's why I'm ringing you'. She had forgotten that I now lived 200 miles away and had done for 23 years, she had forgotten that I was married and she kept saying that she couldn't understand what had happened to make me leave home! This morning she still thought I had gone missing and I found 13 voicemail messages on my mobile. When I rang Mum later in the morning she said she must have been dreaming but she has these blips more and more regularly. We're currently awaiting the results of a Memory Assessment test that she had six weeks ago (apparently this is normal in Lancashire) and I have a PoA going through at the moment but Mum gets so distressed and upset during these blips and I feel so helpless. Has anyone else experienced this?
