I wanted to seek opinion really as I am only 3 weeks into this journey with mum. Would say the first 2 weeks were absolutely overwhelming and filled with huge declines in memory accompanied by accusatory behaviour and aggression which made it clear to me (And the dr) that something is amiss. The past week I would describe as relatively normal in that there is evidence of memory issues but these seem less acute than before (She can remember seeing someone a few days ago but before didnt remember seeing someone hours before) but being honest I have completely allowed the conversation to be controlled by her, she does repeat the same anecdotes and bridges back to the same specific times of her life but also seems to manage to evade talking about the recent past and appears to hold perfectly normal conversations. She also randomly whilst repeating a story said she knew she had told me this 100s of time already but at the same time is sort of as much as it pains me to say making stuff up. She said the dr said she is super fit and healthy (They didnt) and that her sister who has alzheimer's/dementia is only in difficulties because she wrote everything down whereas she never forgets because she wont write things down (She obviously does forget things). She also has hinted at the extra care and attention she is getting is annoying her as he is very independent. Sorry for the ramble but I was just wondering if this was usual? If she went into a shop or the like, I don't know whether they would know that there was something amiss whereas last week there would have been no doubt and so whilst I am slightly relieved that her symptoms seem to have levelled off a bit rather than continuing the decline, I also am questioning whether firstly she has been suffering for longer without me realising and secondly whether she would be able to pull the wool over for example the memory clinics eyes which she is attending in a few weeks? Should I remind her of the drs thoughts or leave her be in this denial bit where she at least seems happier?
