I came home this evening and Mom wanted me to read something she wants to send to a local publication "adding" information to an article they had on our little community.  The "article" is all over the place.  Not sure what prompted it, but she seems to think not all the people who contributed to this community project got the proper credit, and she wants to set them straight.  I questioned where the funding came from for this project because I thought a grant may have been involved and she didn't say anything about that in her "article".  She said no grant. I was shaking my head thinking to myself that something wasn't quite right about the info she had and she talked to me as though I was a three year old.  Told me not to shake my head, that she knew what she was talking about in a very, very nasty tone of voice.  Sigh. She is taking every word and every action personally these days.  What do you think?  She has other signs of Alzheimers. I was just wondering if this is also a sign.

Yes, it can be an early sign. Mood and behavior changes are typical.
