Everytime I see/talk to m 82 year old mom, she argues over everything and says hurtful things. I seen my mom last year through breast cancer, recovery and check ups. She has always been on the negative side of things, and also argues. Now since she moved into a home a year ago, she is assuming and lets me know that I will take her here and there, and everywhere, my husband and I do things for her all the time, and the next call from her is complaining and accusing my husband of telling a story about his mom and that her kids share in the providing rides, bringing her stuff and my mom says that my husband meant it for her. No winning at all with her. I am at wits end, crying and very emotional with her demands, and her guilty ways about her. I told my husband tonight, we need to sell our home and move.
I don't know where to turn anymore, or how to get her to stop complaining about anything and everything, and arguing constantly and calling me a liar over anything she chooses. I have now quit calling her every day, now that she is healthy from the cancer.When she got the flu, I called her every day to check on her as so did my other sisters. I can't call her everyday anymore, it is too draining on me and am loosing sleep and feel just sick about the entire situation. I love her dearly, I just need her to be nice and not look for arguments and not make me feel quilty.
