The report you give on your mother paints a pictor of a rather il woman who lies, forget, tells styories about the private dectective and rolled in dog feces. How long has she been mentally ill? Is she in treatment with med? Has it gotten worse over time/
I would like to proceed, but I can only give an intelligent answer with sonme additional information Thank you.
It sounds like your mother is suffering from a major mental illness possibly worsened by advancing age and dementia. It is really to much to handle without professional help which I believe she urgently requires. If she does bizarre things that are dangerous to self or others you need to call the authories and have her hospitaized. She probably need s to be on medication. The thing with the detective sounds like a paranoid delusion and the action with the feces is definitely a sign nof severe disturbance. There is only so much you can do and you should not feel guily when your needs come first. So I think again the why is because she is mentally ill. The what is is the same possiby worsened by a dementia.
