My husband and I just bought a home in a different state, brought his Mother and my Mother, so all 4 of us live in same home.
They each have their own room down stairs, while my husband and I have all upstairs. Both moms have health issues but nothing major (both in their early 70s) and CAN take care of themselves for the most part.
Since we have been here they have decided that they need me for everything. Both are addicted to going to the Dr and my mom is the worst about it. Its like she is chasing a disease. She loves the special attention when she is "sick". I have already sent them to a 4 month mental health program.
I have problems/irritations with petty things...They won't do ANYTHING in the house. Won't cook, pickup after themselves, leave dishes on counter (have a dishwasher) throw toilet paper rolls in garbage. Change a garbage bag, they just pile it higher. Plus many other minor things that just seem to added up and increase my frustration.
Typing this out makes me feel terrible, but it seems like they are using up all my energy.
We are also expecting our first Grandchild and our daughter is having medical issues which she also wants attention.
Add a husband if 32 years and 2 fur babies (ours) the moms each have 1 of their own (4 total) . Husband helps out especially with cooking. He is restoring the home and I am running our online business.
I just feel used up/no energy and its only been a year.
Thank you for letting me vent.
