Honestly don't think I can stand another 5/10 years of being with my mum.
Horrible saying it out loud but I'm slowly going mad! My dad died (who did everything for her) he's been gone 5 years and now she thinks I'm the replacement for everything she needs doing. Please don't get me wrong I'll help anyone but when it's everything and she won't try to even read a bill reminder or answer the phone or choose a new kettle !!! When my dad was still here she hardly came to my home maybe once a week at the most. Now it's everyday I work cos I'm the bill payer, I'm shattered and not in the best of health but as soon as I get home and sit down she's at my door She'll say the same things then after 15 mins just sits there watching tv till she decides to go sometimes pretending to go home for her tea but then I feel guilty and make it for her I'm stuck in such a rut I don't go out anymore I go to work and come home ... end of! The thought of this going on another 1,2....5/10 years fills me with such hatred and dread. I'm 55 now and brought my 2 boys up from my youngest being born. I can't stand this much longer. Any advice or help appreciated I've had counseling, I've tried explaining to her and it works for a couple of days then it starts again She has a way of making me feel guilty and crap saying she's so lonely and hates being on her own Sometimes I snap and say I love being in my own! I've tried everything
