There have been more issues coming up between Marian and me, from her getting a call to go to work as a couple of people called in sick, and her getting herself in such a panic, that she came to me to shut down her laptop as she didn’t know how to do it. I told her to stop spinning and slow down, or she would get in a car accident.
Another incident was in her telling me at 9:30 pm, that there would be a realtor showing the next morning at 9:00 am. I said thanks a lot for giving me advance notice. She said she told me before and I challenged her, saying that she never told me. A few minutes later she came back and said that it wasn’t tomorrow, but the next Tuesday.
Then when the following week came, I asked her if the realtor showing was still on for 9:00 am and she said she didn’t know, that she would call and confirm. I asked her two more times on Monday and still she didn’t know. I forgot to ask her before she went to bed, so I assumed they were coming. Tuesday morning I got up, had breakfast, was working on my computer, and just before 9:00 am I heard Marian come downstairs to leave the dog outside. I asked her if the realtors were still coming and she said that they weren’t. I replied, “Thanks a lot for telling me!” She came back with a snotty, “All you had to do was ask.” I got angry and let lose a verbal barrage. She took off up stairs saying, “Forget it, it’s no big deal and other nonsense stuff.” She never did apologize or admit that I had asked her. I’m beginning to think that she has the early stages of Alzheimer’s, or that she is so far in denial, that she can’t keep her stories straight, and that she is living in a different reality. Hummm… But then again, maybe they are one and the same.
