I think I made a huge mistake agreeing to take Mom home early. It's only been 5 days and Sister has started the drama, Mom is treating me like crap, everything is my fault again and I'm stressed and miserable.
She treated me like gold while she was in NH. Now I'm thinking of running away from home. You all warned me. Lordy! I feel so stupid now!

What is it with sisters?! They can be so terribly vindictive and hateful. I think mine are actually hoping something happens to me. Not even that would help them to understand.

Thanks Baba. I just spoke to him and he said "he is not putting her in that h*ll hole again" I guess he can figure out something else, because I quit.

Boni, your mom sounds like deep down, she knows what's best for you both. Call your brother. We love you Boni!

I should have listened to Pam. She's a smart cookie, that one.

My 2 Brothers are great! It's the sisters and Mom's dementia screwed up head. She just tired to "threaten " me by saying "This isn't working, I want to go back to the home" I said "That's exactly what I want too." She said "Call your brother and tell him" I said "Call YOUR son and tell HIM!" I'm done.

Boni, I think what we all hoped was that your family would take your heart attack as a warning that things could not continue as they had. Apparently, they didn't learn the lesson.

I don't know how you want to handle this; you've done this longer and better than anyone I know. I guess the question comes down to, do you want to risk another coronary event. What does you doctor say you should be doing? I think that it's still time for you to be taking care pretty of just you, and get mom back into care. But that's just me. I wouldn't be taking care of someone who treated me like crap in the first place.
