    Hey everyone! So this is how it goes. My mom just got home from the hospital last Wednesday and we've been having some trouble with her. She wakes up in the middle of the night screaming, scaring the crap out of everyone in the house. She talks to her self at night so I'm up a lot worrying, haven't been sleeping at all. She has some crazy nightmares and stuff where she thinks she can get out of bed or move her legs, she's parapellgic btw. This morning was the kicker though. She said that she had woken up about 11:30 PM and thought she saw people downstairs in the living room with her, unfortunately its where she sleeps. And she was scared. She even thought me and Starcell were on the couch whispering and she was trying to talk to us and for some reason we were telling her she was dead.

    Now I'm starting to get more and more worried about this situation. I wish I knew what it could be. It seems to be getting worse by the month and I'm afraid this keeps up, she'll either end up in a nursing home or in the hospital the rest of her life... What should I do?

    Ok so my mom just called me at work stating that she was still having illusions and she stoped breathing...Could the illusions be an early sign of dementia? I'm not sure how that works but I'm getting terrified...

    you said she stopped breathing......I know OSA-obstructive sleep apnea can cause very scary nightmares, in an attempt to wake u up. OSA is basically where u quit breathing for a short period of time while sleeping. Not sure if when she stopped breathing she was awake or asleep.

    Otherwise....I think she needs to go see the family doc. I wouldn't suspect that dementia would cause such things. I might be wrong, but it just doesnt sound like it to me.

    Not sure but just a bit of an update. My mom was put back in the hospital lastnight. She has blurred the lines of what's real and what's not...She didn't even remember my brother speaking with her earlier in the day...So I hope she can go back to normal...because right now I think the worst part is that she'll stop remembering who her kids are.

    OOOO Update time I guess. Well we finally know what is wrong. She has an extreme bladder infection, so I guess whatever chemical that gets released went into her blood stream which is causing the hallucinations. So good news is she can get better with medication which makes me so happy! SO YAY MOM!
