Oh dear! Finally got my Dad to see his GP about his agression/paranoia (GP "asked to see him" during his annual heart checkup at the surgery). Poor Dad didn't know what time it was, what day it was, kept on about "the old days" with all sorts of fantastic tales, insisted that he was right and that "the neighbours are definitely damaging our house I saw them do it!". GP told him "you must stop this, your wife cannot cope with you like this, you are making her ill" (dropping us right in it, I suspect Dad despite his problems will manage to work out who reported all this to the GP) He's been prescribed Olanzapine (very low dose at bedtime) and the consultant psychiatrist is coming to visit shortly. Of course Dad immediately said "I know what you're doing, you're going to lock me up in a home!" Unfortunately the specialist Memory Unit is attached to the main Mental Health Hospital for the area - including the secure unit - so just being visited by a doctor from there sounds sinister! Poor Mum came home in floods of tears. migraine headache and shaking (stress makes her Parkinsons worse). What an awful, awful day! Sorry to offlocad like this but I felt I had to get it off my chest and I've no-one else to talk to.
