This is truly nerve racking to me. She acts totally helpless. She is 79 and always says she's 90. I tell her that she's not 90 and she needs to stop saying that. Because that's probably why she's seeming helpless.
Oh and don't let her get around someone else, she really acts helpless then like she can barely walk so that they can jump to her tune.
I know my Mom and she plays on people and it's extremely irritating to me. She's not going to break my back by leaning on me, when she has her walker, etc. She's always been a very needy person and now it's really showing.
