A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Escalating

Hard on the nerves …escalating
No way to conserve … energy
Obsessed with …delusions
Hallucinations …rampant
Wiped  out …totally
Out of … control.

There are few distractions that help when Mother starts  pacing, worrying, delusional, hallucinations all at the same time.   Once she’s in a full-blown episode, just have to ride it out, so to speak.   Calling a sibling to talk to her  early in the episode   sometimes  helps.   Another term in the medical community noticed in older persons is sun downers.    I notice this behavior more  in the evenings, or when she’s extremely tired.
