My 61 year old mother is a severe type 2 diabetic on top of a long list of problems like broken hip and ankle, me and my father have been trying to help her for years, she won't take care of herself like checking sugar and taking insulin and just sleeps all day no matter what we try to do. It's like she doesn't care. We have tried tough love as well as understanding. I am at the point of depression and not caring anymore. If she doesn't care why should we. I love my mother but I need some insight from someone who has been through this.
