Hello, I don't know if anyone can shed any light on experiences with paranoia and psychosis with the disease. My Mum had become psychotic which was why she was sectioned into hospital in the first place. She had her diagnosis of Alzheimer's 3 years ago and I'd struggled for a long time with everything. She's now in a CH (since Dec) and since then and being on her meds, all the abuse and paranoia had gone and she was being loving and warm towards me, which was lovely. However yday when I went in she was in a terribly paranoid state and it really triggered me back to some dark days. I did not know what to do apart from trying to reassure her (it was all about her having an upset stomach last week) but she wouldn't have any of it and insulted me, so I didn't stay long. I asked the nurse and they said they were adding in a new medication to try and allay anxiety but I just wondered if anyone knew if psychosis and paranoia are part of the disease. Mum had these as part of her personality anyway so it could just be that they are inate and not related to the disease. Thanks.
