Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
We are all a product of our environment. Your mother's (sounds like the whole family) was filled with constant threats and acts of violence. So her violent take on life is not suprising, in fact it is to be expected. At the same time there is a very good chance that at her age, dementia is beginning to appear. Dementia is typically filled with violent thoughts and acts and given her life history it is even more understandable. I would definitely have her evaluated before something tragic happens and she acts act out her violent streak. Best wishes and good

Hi, please don't get me wrong, my mum was the most loving, caring woman in the whole world, my siblings and I were very blessed. We had no idea that dad had ever hit her or cheated on her. For my brother to have flew mum, it was totally out of character to which the way we were brought up. My brother asked her if she felt she needed pofessional help, a councillor or something, but she said that the church is her councillor. She is devoted to helping the orphanages in Bali, and whenever she knows someone who is going, she asks them to take over gifts, but if they won't, that is when she starts calling them bastards etc.
I was speaking of the environment that your mother experienced and she was subjected to. In addition the changes that may occur when one ages that are associated with dementia. My concern is that she be evalated. I wish you and her the best, XXXXX XXXXX am concerned which is the reason I suggested the evaluation. Dementia takes away ones judgement.
