So burnt out and tired of being used and abused by my mom. She left another voicemail this morning but I'm sure it will be full of lovebombing and guilt tripping. Literally can't talk with her on the phone anymore. Here are some EMAILS:

You got some good advice on your last post here:

Why did you move back to take care of your mother, knowing she's got THIS many issues she's dealing with?? It's a sad state she's in, but she'll drag you down with her if you're not careful. Please take some of the good advice that was given to you in your last post in June and get APS involved with your mom's case once you step OUT of the picture. It sounds like she has far too many issues for you to be dealing with at this point. She needs managed care now, like Skilled Nursing, where a team of people can look after her 24/7.

I'm so sorry you're faced with such a challenging situation; my heart hurts for you, honestly. You want to help, but HOW do you help someone like this, who's so far gone with mental health issues, who's smoking weed and ignoring diabetes, etc? It's too much for a young woman such as yourself to take on alone, it really is. Sometimes you just have to wave the white flag of surrender and give up the fight.
