My gma on occasion will have what I call an emotional meltdown. This is where something trivial will set her off and she will go crying to her room. I then have to go in there and try to figure out what was that trigger - for instance, my hubby said hi to her one morning but she didn't hear him so she ran to her room crying. I had to explain to her that yes he did say good morning and that seemed to ease her mind because she thought that since he "didn't" say hi to her that he was mad at her. But in the meantime, the ones around us are soooo confused because they don't know what they did!
But then she has minor blow outs that leave us equally reeling. How do you all cope with the emotional aspect of this disease? How do you explain to others about why your loved one has these emotional blowouts? I try to explain that she can't help it and to not take it personally. But sometimes that doesn't work. They are just as confused as ever.
