I'm angry and depressed all the time with mom even though she's so sweet and nice to me.
I'm at my breaking point. I'm also perimenopausal and that doesn't help. I can't seem to shake my anger and resentment and depression. I've been taking care of her for several years and she is on oxygen 24/7. We usually get along fine but she's very needy and has few friends and i'm her sole source of emotional support. She won't go to the senior center. Taking her on vacation means no break for me. We're staying in a wonderful condo with nice amenities but her needs will constantly be in my face. I will be exhausted by the end of the trip. I don't know how to tell her we need to shorten the length of the stay. She needs to get away as much as I do and I know this means so much to her. I just can't put this in perspective. This may be her last vacation. She has pulmonary fibrosis and is nearing the end of the life expectancy.
