187. She was the typical sweet old lady...
never said a mean word to anyone.

When she lost her senses, she became mean and nasty, then turned into a crying child, then didn't even know who her own son was. We never knew from day to day which "Mom" we would get. There were times when she would be all of those in the same day, going back and forth.

It's from watching her struggles with losing her mind...and knowing it...that I developed a lot of empathy for the elderly.
