I've done a lot of research an understand the difference between confabulation an lying. I honestly don't understand why my nan lies on purpose to get out of trouble for doing things she knows is not allowed? For example, this morning she decided to make toast which is fine. What has me stumped is when asked how much toast she had she originally said two I asked are you lying to me? She looked down shamefully then looked up an said no, I then calmly said that is impossible cause there's ten pieces missing, also my son already told on you.... She then looked at me an said I'll eat what I want and don't have to answer to you. I told her that I wasn't mad that she made or ate the toast, I'm upset that you lied to me. Not getting ahead of myself I asked if she was aware she had made that much toast, she answered yes, I was hungry an know I'm not allowed to cook on the stove. So, I then calmly asked why do you keep lying to get away with things? She then answered with it's easier to lie an act like I don't know better to get you to stop talking to me.... Let me add that my nan has always been someone to lie. They say that main character traits go away, Is this going to get worse before it gets better? What do I do? This is the Question I was trying to get at, sorry for being un clear.
