    My mentally ill mother once totally frieked out a home health aide by throwing an apple core at her. My mother was over 80, was recovering from a stroke, and I had warned the aide that my mother was not in a good mood and she should just check on her occasionally from a distance and leave her alone. Why she felt the need to ignore me and go up and say hello is beyond me. But the 80 year old stroke victim had lousy aim and it was just an apple core.

    Deal with it. I used to handle my mother before her first hospitalization when I was 10 years old.
