I would just chalk up paranoia as one of those things which is basic to Alzheimer's people. The feeling of frustration, the feeling of having missed something. It's really big, it's heavy.

We miss a lot of things and there are times when I feel like people are plotting against me, mainly because I don't hear anything from them, I don't hear good words from them all the time; I'm not doing what I want to do all the time. I think paranoia, if I'm reading things right, almost has to be something that's very basic to living with Alzheimer's.
