Who is the Crazy One?

New post on Daughter on Duty.

“‘If she were considerably younger,’ Rebecca says, ‘that would be manipulative behavior; meant to make you think you are the crazy one.’ I’m not so sure it isn’t anyway. It certainly has the same result.”… read more of this post.

One thought on “Who is the Crazy One?

  1. Gretchen, I really feel for you.  My mother-in-law went into dementia; my mother had–well, I don’t know what to call it:  she had parkinson’s and the last summer of her life she had delusions–thought the staff went out in the yard to have sex after closing hours.  (Of course she was in bed; how would she know?)  But her memory was good and we had sensible conversations.

    The old NAACP slogan about “A mind is a terrible thing to waste,” I think applies here.  Minds are wasting, not because of prejudice or any other outside influence, but because of biology and age.  And the daughters have to deal with the undealable.

    God bless you.  I hope the beauties of the area bring you balm.
