My grandma struggles with memory issues and paranoia. She constantly loses things, asks the same questions over and over, and forgets things. The worst thing is that she swears the cleaning guy she fired a couple years ago is breaking in constantly and leaving things on her counter, cropping her photos, putting water in her vitamin bottles, leaving food in her cabinets, etc etc. Ridiculous things that no one who breaks in to someone's house would do. She has had her locks changed 3 times but he still manages to get in and she claims he breaks in at least twice a week. She also thinks he calls her around 4 in the morning but hangs up quick enough that her caller ID and phone company can't trace it.
If anyone tries to imply that her stories are unlikely or that she should go to a doctor she gets very angry. Her attitude about life has become very negative.
Does anyone have any suggestions about what to say, who to call, what actions to take? Her children have power of attorney but she won't give them the papers so apparently they can't do much. I'm very worried but if I can't find a way to convince her I don't think there is much we can do. She lives 3 hours away which makes it more difficult. Any advice is appreciated.
what time of day are you most depressed? For me it’s night. For the most part during the day I stay pretty busy but come night, all the thoughts come flooding in and my moods plummets. So im curious as to what time of day your depression is worse?
I have been flying for over a week, spending a fortune on crap i do not need, even buying a few things twice because i forgot i had just bought them. luckily i stayed in the house most of the time although the dog must have thought i had lost my mind. the crash started on Friday and is getting steadily worse - suicidal ideation is back after my first break from it for years. It is always worse...
