Mom refuses to take my advise.
I am at my wits end. I try to give my mom advise to make things easier, or more beneficial, but she refused to listen, and tells me she doesn't trust my advise. I feel like I'm just her gopher. All I'm good for in her eyes is to take her to the dr, and run her errands. She does ask my opinion on her hair and clothing, but anything else ends up in an argument. Seems the only way "I" have to convince her is to have my sons, put it to her. Then she is all ears... It's actually very insulting. I know she wants to feel independent, and in not trying to take anything away from her, but its unnerving. Even the simplest thing. I cringed when I think of the next few years, when she will not be even worse. Shpuld I just bite my tongue? And lets her do things that are just illigical?
