We live next door to my husbands grandmother in her free rent house and she has a memory problem. Today she insisted that she had paid our electricity bill...wrong! She paid her bill (which was a little high for her) and then found an old electricity bill and mailed another check to TXU wrote it down in her check book and then said she paid my bill. I called the company and they said it was her bill read from her meter, that I paid our bill last month, and that the extra check she sent wasn't necessary. She's ok now, but she is often angry with my husband I for things we didn't do because she just can't remember ! She does not have alzeimers (spelling?), but she is driving us crazy! Anyone else deal with this?

Maybe she has dementia. Take it easy on her. It may frustrating but just remember that you'll be old like that some day.
