244. Kitty Wampus is right.
Edited on Fri Aug-27-10 10:38 AM by Mimosa
Thank goddess for the people on this topic who are trying to provide information.

I don't think any of us have enough information on this case to be making judgments. And as I'd posted when I volunteered in a nursing home I saw that very sweet old ladies may sometimes have some extremely irrational behaviours. Kitty Wampus, you explained it well.

In a few years I'll be 60. I recognise my own mentality is not as sharp as it was in my 30s and 40s. Fortunately I've learned even more understandng and compassion than I ever had before. I used to be compassionate but quicker to judge than I am now. Experiences with all sorts of people and situations, and experiencing one's own weaknesses makes me a better grownup than I was when i was younger. I'm also more liberal ;)

Can sombody tell me which drugs seem to destroy the brains functions? I think it was once common for nursing homes to sedate patients with 'Melaril.'
