I have been taking care of my mother since she broke her hip in Aug 2008. she lives at my house, she is 89. She has a pretty sharp mind just needs help. I prepare all her meals, give her a shower, clean up after her, tuck her in bed. She insists on going to the bank at least 3 times a week along with other errands. She is always telling me to get the paper, get the mail etc. She will not live with either of my two sisters. One sister is rude and disrespectful to her yet my mother showers this sister with shopping trips when she comes to visit us! Cashmere swearter and Coach handbag was the last visit! I am the one that has all the stress and all the work of taking care of my lots of times, crabby mom, and I am never offered a Coach handbag or cashmere! I get 20 questions if I go out without her , "What took so long", "Where did you go?" "Don't be long!!" I feel hateful and jealous and shallow and ashamed for feeling this way. I did have a life! My husband is getting tired of my depressed and angry moods! Can anyone figure my mom out? I know so many of you have so much more work to do in serving your parents but for me my mom is plenty of work I feel so stressed and tired out!
