I seriously think my Mother is suffering from this. My question is can this happen within a few months? It seems that since September she is talking wacky. My Dad passed 1 1/2 years ago & she is alone & refuses to make friends or continue the relationships she had. Basically she's depressed. Actually she has always been upset about something since I was a kid. So I don't know if this is just to get attention (she HAS to be the center at all times) or is she really getting Dementia. If you talk to her in person she sharp as a tack but when I talk to her on the phone it's like looney. Maybe she's not paying attention like watching TV while I am talking to her. I don't know.
The odd thing about her is that she develops every condition that one of her friends has. Her friend is suffering with back pain & has to stay in bed. Sure enough, now she has back pain & she's staying in bed. My Sister's MIL has slight Dementia now my Mom is acting like she has it.
So is it possible for Dementia to have such a quick onset or is she full of shit?
