Mum started to go weird yesterday evening. She has got into the habit of being incredibly restless after about 7pm. She’s up and down but doesn’t know where she wants to go. She rarely settles to watch anything on TV nowadays and has started to get ready for bed as early as 8.30. I try to discourage this as the earlier she goes to bed the earlier she’s up the next day.
She disappeared for a while at 9pm and when I went to check on her, she was changing her clothes. Seemed to think she was going somewhere. When I suggested she get into her dressing gown, she told me she wasn’t getting undressed for bed. I said she couldn’t sleep in her clothes but she got quite argumentative and insisted it was okay to sleep fully dressed. I asked her if she’d get undressed ‘to humour me’ which she did eventually with alot of sighing.
She got up for the bathroom at least 6 times in the night, once with an interval only 10 mins between visits. I think it must just be a habit that when she is half-awake, she presumes she has to visit the bathroom.
Also had the lights and lamps episode at 3.30 am.
I’m a bit tired today!
