Okay, so my mother was a very spiritual person. In August, however, she ran off the road and lost her memories from the previous month. She is now acting strangely. By this, I mean she is very dense, lost her creativity and licks her lips like a lizard and has little to no compassion.

I want to know if anyone else has had a similar experience. I looked up "rapture August 2013" on Google and got some interesting hits. My mom was a very spiritual person before this, now I would call her materialistic and not capable of empathy.

I don't really know how to research this properly, but there are some disturbing visions people had and posted on Facebook right before or during early August. Although with the internet, it is hard to tell. You ever have that experience on YouTube where you end up in a certain "district?" Ha ha.

I want to know if anyone else has experienced anything similar to what I described with their friends or relatives.

Sorry about your mom. Has she had a complete medical checkup since then?

Thanks, yeah. That's when she found out that she had lost her memory from the previous month. Also, afterwards, she had sudden onset stuttering and her personality drastically shifted - that caused me to panic pretty bad.

Old ways of communicating with her haven't worked since then, and she was a big support system for me, and I'm going through a hard time myself.

So basically it has been super hard for me because right when everything went downhill, my support system changed personalities (legitimately) and I have been struggling. You may have noticed my threads are not as coherent.

Also, I've been getting into arguments with her lately, and suddenly I realized that I don't think she remembers what she has said or what has been going on - so that made me really wonder about her health. Like she says something, and then the next day, I ask her about it and she doesn't remember saying it, and we get into an argument about that.

At first, I thought it was because she was trying to be defensive, but I do not think so, also, it is scary because I'm having trouble supporting myself and I just moved back in with my parents. I'm a bit freaked out about having to rely on my mom for support if she is going senile, and also, I'm barely able to cope with getting my own life together at the moment.

It is a lot of stress with little support. Also, I'm worried about my mom.

Yeah, seeing our parents age is one of the downsides of living a long life. Going through that decline and worse are some of the hardest things to do, and she's probably confused as to what's happening to her as well. Time for lots of love, patience, and taking her to her favorite pasttimes and venues to build back or strengthen old memories.

That's going to be my approach, thanks, but first I have to get so I'm not dependent on her - I can't comfort her from that position - since I moved back, I have been in full swing on that, but it's up in the air whether or not it will work out. I am giving it my best shot.

You may be exactly where you're supposed to be right now. She'll need support in this time of crisis, and moving back in with her gives her someone to talk too when she's ready to talk about it. It's one of the debts we owe our parents, and you are lucky to be there for her and will be happy you were there later.

As for the rapture, ministers love that one, easy pocketmoney to preach that heaven will be taking everyone in the church soon so you might as well pass your money to the front please.

The licking of the lips may be from small seizure activity. Repetition is a clue to this. My activity was from slight scarring of the Temporal lobe and it made the link straight through the brain difficult.

I don't know if they are treating her for this. Eating boiled cabbage in soups keeps my epilepsy at bay. Also eating any boiled veggies containing sulfur. Even increasing meats may help. There are lots of natural ways to combat this.

It will probably heal but it will take time. If she is taking medicines, the personality change may be because of the meds. My TLE is an inconvenience, one that necessitates watching my diet. The dietary adjustments are a treatment, not a cure.

Really? So she's not a reptilian then?
Thanks RickyMouse for the advice.

Look at the symptoms on this page I am attaching a link to. www.depression-guide.com...

It is from partial seizures and can be caused by a small brain injury. It may not be anything to worry about, it may go away on it's own with time. It is evident that there was a brain injury if she lost her memories of the last month. If there is very little scarring, it is doubtful if it will be permanent.

Most probably...no


I wanted to say a stroke...kinda seems similar. People can endure lighter strokes and heart attacks and carry on physically without even noticing it.

I have actually thought about this a time or two, but I wanted to say that you are not alone in dealing with your mother.

It is one of the hardest things to do to watch someone who has always been so strong, self sufficient, the hero, the caregiver, the protector, etc. become less strong, less perfect, and less independent. It doesn't matter how old or young you are. It's a shock to the system and one I am having a hard time with just as you are. You go through life assuming your parents are invincible, but when the truth hits home it hits us harder than we ever thought possible. It's also extremely hard in your situation because the memories you shared are now only being remembered by one instead of two. I don't know you, but my heart aches for you because the whole situation sucks (for lack of a better description).

I wish you strength to deal with the road before you. You will be able to do what you need to do and become less dependent on her as she becomes more dependent on you. It is the way of life if we are blessed enough to have our parents into adulthood. You worry that you will not be able to do it.... but you will. I can see the love you have for her in your post and that will carry you both through whatever may come. Don't beat yourself up for losing patience either. That is normal and only natural when you are dealing with so much stress.

My PM is always open and I can listen if you ever need to talk. Be kind to yourself in the meantime.

If all of this just started happening after she ran her car off the road, she probably had some kind of brain damage. Did she hit her head in her accident?

Sorry to hear about your Mom.

My father had a very nasty fall where he injured his head and was in a coma for weeks. When he finally woke up he needed a lot of physical therapy before coming home. Prior to the fall he was a very vigorous and engaged person - both physically & mentally.

After returning home he had many of the same symptoms as your Mom - lip licking, loss of memory, personality change, very short attention span, etc. In short - he was a completely different person.

For what it's worth, over time many of these symptoms receded and he became much more like his old self. He never came "completely" back, but my sisters & I used to say he was about 95%. We were very thankful for that. It took a lot of kindness and gentle patience on everyone's part (especially my Mom as my sisters and I were grown and had families & homes of of our own) but we found that worked best. Arguing and/or visibly losing patience with him was pointless and counter-productive.

That's what worked for my family - I hope it helps. And I'm sending you warm thoughts of sympathy & healing - I know what you're going through.

I don't know if rapture is the right word to describe it, but there are a number of threads that are going around right now describing what would be more like a shift from timeline 1 to timeline 2. For the most part of what I've been reading about it and from what I understand of it, what it seems everyone experienced was some sort of ripple in the time space continuum , kind of like throwing a rock onto a relaxed pond of water, some sort of ripple from that rock just washed over all of us then the pond went back to being relaxed, and from the way everyone on here is talking about it there seem to be subtle changes in everyone's lives, the effect people are describing can be explained by discussing the effects of time travel, for example a person travels back in time a short way and changes some event, well by changing that event there would be a ripple in the time space continuum kind of like throwing a rock onto a relaxed pond of water, everyone would notice the ripple on the water because they felt it , but also recognizing that after the ripple passed by that everything was the same with only subtle differences noticeable to those sensitive enough to notice the subtle changes. I can't say for sure that's what happened, but like I said there are a couple of different threads discussing this type of effect that people have noticed in their life recently, and from what I've noticed, there are a lot of people here on ATS who have recognized some sort of change like this.

Do you have any info or notions as to when this timeline shift may have happened? Dates or at least a rough approximation?

Am genuinely curious for personal reasons...

Sorry about your mother.

What are the types of brain damage and how severe are they?

All traumatic brain injuries are head injuries. But head injury is not necessarily brain injury. There are two types of brain injury: traumatic brain injury and acquired brain injury. Both disrupt the brain's normal functioning.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is caused by an external force -- such as a blow to the head -- that causes the brain to move inside the skull or damages the skull. This in turn damages the brain.

An Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) occurs at the cellular level. It is most often associated with pressure on the brain. This could come from a tumor. Or it could result from neurological illness, as in the case of a stroke.

What medical tests have been done with your mother? If none, I suggest she be taken to a specialist.

As for the rapture? No such thing.

Within the last month or so it could be a little longer than that, but a ripple in the time space continuum should be felt from the time the traveler arrived in the past, the ripple should be felt a little stronger at the moment when the timeline was changed, and just like with any other wave it would diminish over time. So realistically it could go back even further. Say for example a time traveler goes back in time six months to change an event that happened two months ago, there may have been a slight ripple that changed things in a minimal way six months ago ,but then four months later, when the major event that they were sent to change happens the ripple in the time space continuum would be more dramatic because of the larger change to the timeline, hence it would be more noticeable.

Dark bake, I'm truly sorry to hear about your mother.. My mom had three brain aneurisms that was operated on.. Was suppose to be a couple hour procedure. It turned into 11 hours.. She has changed also.. Not to the extent or degree your describing but disconcerting nonetheless..

As far as the rapture, no.. That takes place bodily, "and we who are alive and remain shall be caught up to meet our lord in the clouds" .. I don't believe in any time shift ether..

You say your mother was spiritual, do you mean church going? Spiritual can mean anything now a days..

it is called traumatic brain injury, along the lines of a concussion but more severe, a MRI or CAT scan would show this but it is expensive there is no known treatment. there was no Rapture nor will there be. They get that from the text
" and the lord will call upon them... come here" and "when the harvest is ripe , take your scythe and gather the harvest"
