I recently realized my dream of moving to the south from Wisconsin.
I had no choice but to bring my 88 year old mother with me. She would have been completely alone otherwise. We lived in different homes before the move.
We now live together, due to the fact that I stupidly thought it would work out just fine. But living with her is the most soul-sucking, spirit crushing thing I've ever experienced.
All she does is complain about EVERYTHING. I get home from a long day at work to find the furnace on 84 degrees, all the windows shut tight (and she gets mad if I attempt to let in any fresh air) and nothing but demands and negativity coming out of her mouth. Every light in the place is constantly burning also. My life has to now revolve around her every want and need, and God help me if I disagree with her about anything.
She is legally blind and can barely walk. She really should be in either a nursing home or at least an assisted living facility.
How do I go about making that happen with the least drama possible?
She can be a nasty, mean person when presented with any idea that she disagrees with. I simply cannot do this much longer. I'm almost afraid I'd rather be dead that living like this.
