@TeddyPersians So sorry you are going through that. Please seek medical help as there are things that can slow the progression. My mom went through it. Some lessons I learned that helped us both:

1. For him every time is the first time. He has no idea he’s asked you a question
@TeddyPersians 10 times before so you need to respond as if it’s the first time he’s ever asked you.

2. Saying “don’t you remember” is a waste and will only serve to upset him. He doesn’t.

3. You have to go to wherever he is mentally because he can’t come to you.
@TeddyPersians 4. Whatever he says, just go with it. Mom talked once about our trip to New Zealand (never been) and how wonderful it was. I agreed and we chatted for an hour about it.

5. He lives in 10 minute increments of time. Your job is to make every 10 minutes as pleasant as possible
@TeddyPersians 6. When it becomes too much to handle, get help.

It’s not easy. But I hope this helps.

My suggestion for a response from @SpeakerPelosi to the letter from Mr. Cipollone:

Dear Mr. Cipollone:

Thank you for your letter. It is clear in your letter that you have little knowledge about how the impeachment process works. Let me take this opportunity to educate you. /1
@SpeakerPelosi There are two phases to the impeachment process. The investigation and the trial. The House does the investigation and votes on whether or not to move forward. If they do vote to move forward, the proceedings move to the Senate where a trial is held. /2
@SpeakerPelosi As an analogy: The police believe that a crime may have occurred. Based on that believe they begin an investigation. They interview potential witnesses, gather documents, and review all the facts. The only time a lawyer for the accused would be involved is if they interview /3
