I'm ready to jump!
Mom, 92, living with me for over 10 years and not the easiest person to get along with. Everything is a battle and it's getting worse as I feel there is a bit of dementia slipping in. Mom is having trouble taking her meds correctly and I'm trying to step in but she's being resistant. I feel as though she knows she's slipping and is being combative because of it. Major blow out last night over stupidity like blaming me for her blood pressure being high. I provide her with a nice, comfortable home and yes, she gives me rent money, and why shouldn't she? But she begrudges everything I do from taking vacations to going to the casino, to having a boyfriend and getting my nails done. you name it. She's bitter and miserable through and through. I work all day and never know what I'm walking into when I get home. I have 3 useless brothers and absolutely no outside support whatsoever. I'm at my wit's end trying to tiptoe around her everyday. I can't enjoy my home or my life. I'm 60 and God knows I don't have that many good years left, and meanwhile she is sucking the life out of what I do have. I look forward to the day I can put her in a home. I am so miserable.
