My mom has head injuries and I've known her to be the way she is now since I was 4 years old. It takes a LOT of patience; I still catch myself saying, "I JUST said that." then I feel bad because I know she doesn't remember. I have to remind myself that is tough as it is for me, it's a million times harder for her knowing her independence is forever lost. There are some really good rehabilitation centers out there that help people with brain injuries; my mom has been going to one for almost 20 years now and it seems to have helped out quite a bit. Just be there for her and treat her like you would any other person.
You ARE a wonderful woman, and Daughter.
THANK-YOU BABY! @MrPancho
The fact that your still friends with her speaks VOLUMES about your character. I for one applaud you sir for continuing to be patient and working with her.
I have one
Yes, I know a lady (although not very closely) with similar issues. She's so sweet though, and I find it helps to forget myself and just go along with her route of sorting through things.
My mother in law has a brain injury and all of these things are "normal". She talks about kissing men and having sex (shes 75 and in a wheelchair). It is very disconcerting but becomes easier as time goes on - you kind of get used to it and just overlook it. People lose their filters sometimes and do not know what is appropriate to talk about. She also calls our house all the time sometimes over and over because she forgets she called or is just lonely. It is very tough because you can't really ask them to change or stop because they do not even realize what they are doing. Try your best to be patient - I know it is hard. :)
Strange how a brain injury does things to your sexuality. Fetish desires popped up but I wonder how it picks them.
