“I’m just not myself”

Back from vacation, my mother mourned her loss of identity.

How does she know? Is there a mechanism that alerts people who are getting dementia, to identify that moment they grow further away from their identity?

I am grateful that I have so many lovely memories of her….so ¬†grateful.
