My mum is just starting with this, I think. She quotes things at me as being something somebody "told" her (she doesn't get to see or talk to many people very much, now), and then when we are watching the evening TV news it turns out to be a sound-bite from the day's radio or TV headlines.maria29al said:Mum ... now thinks the people on the Television are speaking to her personally....a little unsettling
Oh LouLou, don't be sorry, we all go off at a tangent now & then.lou lou said:The highs and lows of her dementia never cease to amaze me. Here's hoping she stays well enough for me to go to Peru again in June, a holiday I had to return from urgently last year when MIL died suddenly, the cat died and mum went into hospital after yet another fall while I wasn't there.
Sorry for meandering, I did just mean to reply to the TV thread but you know what it's like once you start. Wishing well to all of you in your own personal struggles.
Lou Lou, thank you for sharing that. If I told you how many chords it struck I would be here all evening! (If you meander I can be a streaming torrent!!!)lou lou said:because the TV was her only companion for many hours of the day. .....
I just accomodated to without ever considering that mum couldn't stay in her own home.....

thats what happening to mum nowI think it's because she cannot follow a storyline.
