[ - ] DH here, and need some help with my wife. An hour ago, she saw a spot in front of her eyes. She closed her eyes for 10 minutes, and now, is having a hard time putting thoughts together. She was reading on the internet, and nothing made sense. She just said to my daughter: "Let's go to the....roost...and watch something to eat" instead of "let's go to the roof and bring something to eat." We are both simultaneously laughing at the weirdness, and freaked out by it. Will call a doctor in about half an hour, but wanted to come here first to see if this sounds familiar to anyone.

no, I guess not if she has always been this way it may be something deeper. I know a couple of people who are manic and go through destructive phases like this.

no, she's only 57. if she were deemed to have a disability she could get something like SSDI but i'm not sure depression if that' what it is, qualifies her. She gets obsessive about things too, like right now she has 70 fish tanks filled with guppies that she's "breeding". they don't cost much because she trades the babies for food, but it's still obsessive. when i was a kid it was birds (parrakeets).

NP: It sounds as though there is some sort of mental health issue -- but it can be hard to get the right treatment (even with insurance!).
