Default Arguing with mum

Hello just wondering if anybody else has experienced any similar situations to this. My mum has HD, has been diagnosed over a year ago but we knew there was something up with her years before diagnosis. My mum is still independent but just needs my help with bills and appointments and shopping etc. But recently I can hardly have a conversation with my mum without it turning into some sort of argument or her kicking off. Itís the same situation with my brother and sister, anything we say to her will set her off. Yesterday I asked her what she had for dinner, as soon as I said it she was straight on the defence ďwhat do you mean what have I had for dinnerĒ. Itís the same if we say we will do something and donít do it straight away, she will go on about it and not let it go till it is done right at that minute. And if itís not done right at that minute she WILL NOT let us forget it. I canít even tell if this is a symptom anymore, itís so frustrating trying to talk to her and it always turning into an argument. Me and my sister and brother are trying to word what we say in a better way but it doesnít seem to be working.
Anyone have any advice on what to do/if this is a symptom?
