We are burned out. She is 84.And my two young adult sons and I decided to move in with her.My Father passed away Feb 2016. None of my siblings would step up to the plate and help. We have been living with her for five months now.She has some dementia,OCD and narcissim going on. She barely sleeps . Nothing makes her happy. Sometimes I think she wants people to feel sorry for her.She is not in real bad shape healthwise. Labs ok. She is slowing down though. WE ARE BURNED OUT. I do not even feel like I can keep the bathroom sanitized enough. Because she is stubborn with some of her hygiene. I am starting to maybe think my father did most everything in the house when he was alive. She wont even put her dirty clothes in the dirty basket. She is fussy. Always has been.And dont even go there with the narcissim.The last two or three birthdays my father had at home. Do you know she just kept bringing up hers was soon?Right in front of his birthday cake!!!!!!When she uses cups, bowls etc. She will rinse them QUICK (NO SOAP) and put them anywhere in cupboard. Gross. I am not even going to tell u more about hygiene. Its disgusting. My hands permantly smell like bathroom cleanser
Could talk for hours. But I would like some opinions from people. All of 2016 here will be impossible! WE REFUSE TO BE DRIVEN INSANE. I do all i pissibly can and have gotten NOWHERE. We are miserable!!!
