In the last year everything in her health has deteriorated. I was taking on more than I could do and she demands more. She has COPD, heart failure, kidney failure among a host of other issues. She has "mild cognitive issues", but doc says she's fine. My husband and I are stressed beyond burn out. Doc told me "stay away from her". Tough to do in same house with parts shared. She's refused all help in house...putting me in position to stop interacting with her. We put a small kitchenette in our part of house, but it is so small, we don't eat properly. Kitchen is shared. She's very mad that we no longer do all she wants. This is taking a toll on me. The fighting has eased with no interaction. This person is NOT the mother who raised me. I'm at my wits end.
