I am "temporarily" caring for my 81 yo mother while her back heals from a fracture. I live in a different state and just retired so I have the time. I have now been here almost 2 months and if she asks me one more question or questions one more thing that I am doing I think I'm going to blow a gasket!!
This is probably not the forum for venting but my children and sister are tired of hearing it and they are all working and cannot help. I am grateful that my sister will be able to relieve me for 2 weeks soon but the past few days have been a horror. I have a separate space in the house to escape to but then she calls me on the phone to ask if I want to have a meal with her... I know, such a horror - lol. But it's CONSTANT talking and EVERYTHING has a 10-20 minute story to listen to.
I am more of a loner/recluse in MY life so this constant activity and talking is getting to be too much without more of a break. I really needed to vent and probably to should get a journal for venting.
I apologize if this was inappropriate. I've been on this site long enough now to know I am not the only one going thru this. If "you" can stay strong so can I.
