I can't take it anymore! The narcissism is driving me insane!
Mom's CONSTANT complaints, requests, talking about herself. I'm at the end of my rope. I live here and am working way too many hours. Other caregivers come in to help the rest of the time. Mom can't do anything for herself and is waited on hand and foot.
Thankfully a live-in candidate from an agency is coming here this morning to train. I'm SO burned out I wish very often that she just drop dead. I hate my behavior, my rage...I'm going to lose it soon and don't know what to do.
The only thing I can think of to put a lid on my anger is to leave the room. ahhh, now i feel better for the time being.
I am going through menopause and i think that has a lot to do with my intense outbursts so I should give myself a break. Ha...just put two and two together on this...because i'm having a hot flash. LOL.
How do i stop reacting to her narcissistic behavior without going crazy???
