My mom is the kind of woman who doesn't forget ANYTHING. She makes a list for every single little thing, always organized, never misplaces things. The last year I've noticed she's been experiencing horrible mood swings...she will randomly freak out and go "MEGAN! Where's my cell phone??" and it's right next to her....
Well she told me today that last week as she left work she was feeling really strange...she was driving to Kroger and could figure out which lane she needed to be in (we've lived in the same area for 14 years and she drives there almost daily) and she was freaking out, she kept changing lanes and just couldn't figure out where she needed to be. And then she got to kroger and was going to get some flowers and was standing in the flower area for 20 minutes...went to another area and asked if she could get some help and the man told her "the woman in the flower department can help you" and she argued that there was no one there and he said "ma'am she's been there the whole time" and she turned around and sure enough there was a woman standing there. Next she went to the atm...put in her pin...punched in $60.00 and the next thing she knew she had a receipt in her hand and no money...she went to the bank teller who told her to try again and she ended up putting her card in...doing it again and when she opened her wallet to put the 60 in there...there was another 60 already there so she clearly had gotten her money and just hadn't remembered taking it out.
This worries me...she's only 41 but she has a family history of vertigo, heart disease, and dementia.
Should I be worried? She just seems strange lately.
