I told this little story before and I will again because I think of it often.
When my grandfather was in his final months, we were transferring him between hospital to nursing home to nursing home. Three out of four of these places made my head spin, while one of them was the kind of place I would like to go if I am fortunate enough to see that age. Of those three, one was the awful hospital and the other two were some pretty shoddy nursing homes with some tenants who were not quite there but something was definitely telling in their demented state of minds.
One instance that is forever burned into my mind was at one of these two places where the tenants were only given as much attention as required. I opted to stay the night with my grandfather after witnessing one trying to steal things from him right in front of me. The man had no concern for my presence and that my grandfather was asleep and in pain, but I did feel very sorry for him. However, later in the day I was mortified as I watched him attempt to sexually harass a nurse and she was rather passive about it.
Later that night I spoke with one of the more adept registered nurses about this due to how badly it affected me and I was explaining why refused to leave my grandfather alone there. She told me that most nurses deal with that kind of thing and that while most of the time it's fairly harmless, someone like him is someone they have to deal with but what leaves her most curious is that he is likely enacting some cognitive behavior that lied dormant in his better days. Keep in mind, this is only her theory but my early, pre-board interests in the case at the time really felt inspired by this.
According to her theory, this man was probably worse off then most men in his better days as he had issues that he kept hidden from the world. While his demented state became more and more aggressive, those dormant and repressed emotion began to surface in place of the control he once exhibited over it. She believed that due to his nature and how his family treat him while he is in their care, he lived a lonely life where he was able to get away with things that most people would not accept.
So this theory came back to me later and I started thinking what if EARONS is in the nursing home suffering from dementia like this man was? Would his primal urges begin to surface and show themselves in some more apparent, albeit slighter instances? Would anyone really even be able to tell that this was a now genuinely demented psychopath capable of murder?
As I researched dementia and brain-effective illnesses later in life, I began to recede most of these theories into the unlikely but it still affects me in how I approach thinking about the EARONS at this phase in his life... IF he is still kicking.
Anyway this is just some stuff that I was pondering about.
elir: Take one out of the car, separate then can control. he isnt talking about two people, though.

elir: It is hard enough to lose someone you love but to have no resolution, all those years. I cant imagine. Hope that other people that have been through this can give them support.
